Textbook Affordability



Textbook affordability is a collaborative effort across UCF recognized as the Affordable Instructional Materials (AIM) Initiative. AIM involves the UCF Libraries, Division of Digital Learning, Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs, Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning, and the UCF Bookstore.

Within the UCF Libraries, the textbook affordability librarian leads the efforts and collaborates with teaching faculty, instructional designers, librarians and library staff, and pertinent campus units to promote and transition traditional course content to affordable textbook alternatives such as open educational resources (OER) and library-sourced eBooks and materials. Textbook projects involve collaboration among many areas of the library, including subject librarians for specialized support, the Office of Scholarly Communication for copyright assistance, and multiple other departments to manage textbooks.
