From the U. of Toronto:
When 1,900 University of Toronto students sat in on their first lectures of the year, they were in for a pleasant surprise.
Their professors stood in front of the class and proudly proclaimed that students didn’t have to pay a thing for their course readings. They would be able to access all of their readings online thanks to the Zero-to-Low Cost Course Project (ZTLCC).
The project connects professors with librarians to find ways of sourcing course material digitally.
The program, run by the copyright office, is estimated to have saved students over $400,000 since 2015.
