Inclusive Access helps professors offer students cheaper textbooks - Becca Holladay, Daily Nebraskan
Textbook prices have long been a grievance that can quickly and steeply increase the overall cost of higher education. Members of the Association of Students of the University of Nebraska Academic Committee are working to fix that. The Academic Committee’s main priority is for professors at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln to move toward using Inclusive Access, a method of procuring textbooks for classes that differs from the traditional individual orders. Additionally, the committee hopes UNL classrooms will eventually implement Open Educational Resources, which are similar in theory to Inclusive Access. OER are free and reusable non-copyrighted resources that institutions and teaching officials can utilize for their classes, according to the OER Commons website.
