Library campaign shares students’ stories about course material affordability - Yankun Zhao, GW Hatchet

GW Libraries staff are encouraging professors to adopt and use more affordable course materials through a new campaign. Gelman Library staff launched a “Postcard Campaign” at the start of this semester to offer students the chance to create cards detailing their struggles with affording textbooks and other course items by showing other items they could have purchased, like food, with the money spent on course materials. Gelman officials said the postcards will raise awareness about textbook affordability and open educational resources, which are free to access and use.
