eTextbooks for Students ( Summer 2023)
In our continuing effort to track the use of library licensed electronic books assigned in courses we identified 81 titles used in 40 courses during the summer semester. We searched the University Bookstore’s textbook catalog to identify titles adopted by instructors. In adopting the Libraries licensed resources for their courses, we believe instructors saved UVic students a total of $40, 944.75 and in doing so created high impact for students’ access and affordability to a quality education. The total savings for the 2022-23 academic year is $835,413.75. These savings improve students’ access to affordable, quality education and is closely aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals #4.
CALL TO ACTION:
FACULTY: Lets us know if you are using an open textbook or a UVic Libraries licensed resources for you course this academic year.
