Full Text Book: “OER Course Marking Book Models Best Practices”

From a SPARC Blog Post:

Increasingly, colleges are choosing — or being required by state law — to inform students which courses on campus use open educational resources or other low cost materials. A new book shows higher education officials how to set up a workable system that makes it easy for students to find classes with free materials.

Marking Open and Affordable Courses: Best Practices and Case Studies was released in May on a free, online platform.

It is designed for administrators, librarians, campus store managers, instructors, registrars, and others interested in affordable resource markings.
