OU Libraries ebook purchasing program to support courses.

The Affordable Course Materials Initiative (ACMI) supports faculty converting courses to utilize low-cost, no-cost, and open educational resources (OER) as course materials. However, we recognize that not all courses and subjects will have readily available OER content thus, we implemented an ebook purchasing program for qualifying courses and corresponding books.

Review the criteria and submit an application from the ACMI website.

If you have any questions, please contact Julia Rodriguez, ACMI Coordinator.
