Rutgers launches open textbook project - Laura Devaney, eCampus News

A new open textbook project from Rutgers University includes a grant program administered by Rutgers University Libraries that will give incentives to faculty or department groups that replace traditional textbooks with free, low-cost or open alternatives. The Open and Affordable Textbook Project (OAT) has the potential to save students across the university as much as $500,000 within its first year. At least one Rutgers course is proactively moving in this direction, business librarian Mei Ling Lo said. “Students taking the course Aggregate Economics are using our e-books this semester and the savings are substantial,” Lo said.
