Assessing Faculty Perceptions of Free Educational Resources: One Institution's Experience
Young, Brian
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v28 n3 p150-158 2016
Providing financial incentives to faculty who adopt free educational resources in place of traditional textbooks is becoming more common in U.S. higher education institutions. The University of Mississippi (UM) offered liberal arts instructors the opportunity to apply for internal funding to replace one traditional textbook in their classroom with a free-to-student resource. The researcher used a survey to capture instructors' perceptions of free educational resources while preparing their new syllabus. Results from the survey are summarized and their implications for the local library and libraries at large are discussed.
