Hello all,
And to jump on this email; we at the library are happy to help you find online resources (or maybe we have them already?).  We started an initiative this year - Alt-Textbook; encouraging faculty to use our resources in lieu of textbooks.  https://www.library.ohiou.edu/services/for-faculty/scholarly-communication/alt-textbook-initiative/
                (this is last years, but it will be basically the same).

There will be another CFP from the Library in the Fall for creating online textbooks - btw, you get paid to be a part of this initiative.

Ask me Q's
Best,
lorraine

Subject: Textbook and Materials Updating in the Textbook System

Dear Department Chairs, School Directors, and Administrators:

The Textbook Cost Reduction task force has been looking for ways to minimize costs of course materials and at how timely information is provided to students regarding required textbooks and materials for their classes. There is a direct and significant relationship between how early a student knows what textbook to purchase and the availability of lower cost used textbooks. In addition, the Higher Education Opportunity Act requires universities that receive federal funding to provide to students the textbooks and materials with approximate prices before students register for classes.

The textbook system is available for updating Summer 2015-16 classes and Fall 2016-17 classes. Here are a few reminders/tips:

*         The Textbook System is available at https://webapps.ohio.edu/textbook and there is a Frequently Asked Questions page with answers at https://www.ohio.edu/registrar/textbook-faqs.cfm.

*         If there are no textbooks or materials required for purchase you can enter a standard note, "No textbook or materials required for purchase." Other standard notes include, "Required resources available electronically." and "Individualized materials as assigned."

*         If the textbook is unknown at this time, you can enter a material with the description "Textbook to be determined" and enter an approximate price. This enables the student to plan accordingly and meets the spirit of the federal law.

*         If the textbook is known, please enter it in the Textbook System as soon as possible with the approximate price. This information is sent automatically to local bookstores and is displayed in the Course Offerings. Providing this information to students early enables the student to price compare with multiple vendors and purchase the book at a lower cost.

*         If a textbook is not required, but specific supplies such as software, notebook, etc. are required, you should also enter this into the Textbook System as a material. The approximate cost should also be entered.

*         The Textbook System enables you to mark a textbook or material as required or optional. If the textbook or material is not required, but suggested as an additional resource then please mark it as optional.

*         If you need training or tips on using the Textbook System, please contact the scheduling staff in the Office of the University Registrar at scheduling at ohio.edu<mailto:scheduling at ohio.edu> or 740.593.4188.
