Are you ready to explore alternatives to overpriced textbooks? Our team-based approach will connect you with a subject librarian, instructional designer, and bookstore administrator who help you locate, evaluate, adopt, adapt, or even create affordable and open educational resources (A&OER) for your courses.
Once you answer a few brief questions in our A&OER Team Consultation Request Form, a team of specialists from the University Libraries, Course Design and Technology, and The Mizzou Store will begin the work of identifying open, freely available, and affordable textbooks, courseware, and other materials that meet your instructional needs.
