We are delighted to announce the launch of Faculty Select, a new addition to the library’s Open and Affordable Textbook Initiative.
Faculty Select is a starting place for faculty to discover and select open and affordable e-books for their courses through a single search. Search over 160,000 titles across all disciplines from LMU’s collection of unlimited-user e-books, OER textbooks, and e-books from select publishers available for library acquisition.
Every single resource that you can find in Faculty Select is either open or licensed for unlimited users, and either has a link ready to embed in Brightspace, or a request form to let us know that you’d like us to buy it for the library collections.
Please note that Faculty Select does not include offerings from all publishers, nor every OER that’s out there. If you’re not finding what you’re looking for, please contact your librarian liaison for help!
As with all course adoptions, we encourage you to report to the bookstore that you’re using a library e-book, OER, or that no text is required. This information can help students find the information they need for all of their courses in a single location, and also helps us track open and affordable course material use across campus.
