Our individual instructors will tell our bookstore how many copies they want printed ahead of time-- and then if more books are needed then they will put in an order and the printed books will arrive later
Out bookstore is own by Follett...no real interaction with the campus community.
I’m at Long Beach City College, and we’ve had Barnes and Noble on campus for about 5 years.
Our school (CCSF) uses Follet, and our Follet managers have been fabulous with OER!
However, we print on demand for Openstax OER courses and provide paper copies if requested by students. About 30% of the students in the online course usinig Openstax requested the print copy. It's about $20 from the books store.
COC is Barnes and Noble
I think our campus is a product of the individual manager.
Apologies for no audio; my campus doesn't let me call the area code for some reason. In case it might be useful, here's the page regarding the bookstore on our OER libguide: http://libguides.lamission.edu/c.php?g=820479&p=5857498
Also, if students are relying on Financial Aid to assist with textbooks, our bookstore has indicated that the textbook has to be listed as "required"... just in case that's impacting anyone
so if you listed an OER and print as option the print should note required to get fin aid to pay?
It is for EOPS
It's under TRIO federal guidelines
Thanks for the information and suggestions for working with the library. This was useful for some perspectives to help promote the use of OER.
Thank you everyone!
