Higher ed systems expanding access to open-source materials - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

Several higher education systems in the northeast have launched campus-based publishing imprints and initiatives designed to expand open-source and digital textbook production and usage. The State University of New York and University of New Hampshire systems are encouraging faculty to make broader use of open source publishing for research, teaching titles and learning opportunities to become more familiar with the technology. Programs that have moved from pilot to campus- or system-wide initiatives have begun to yield student savings — about $148,000 at the University of New Hampshire last year. http://www.educationdive.com/news/higher-ed-systems-expanding-access-to-open-source-materials/421430/
