Textbook Transformation projects support faculty who are creating and/or using an open textbook or open educational resources in place of the traditional textbook in their course.
We provide data analytics support to LOUIS libraries to identify course adopted eBooks that are available for campus purchase. Institutional data is analyzed against current physical and electronic holdings to support library reserves programs.
Open Textbook Network workshops help introduce faculty to the use of open textbooks in their courses and build administrative and staff support for open textbook adoption.
LOUIS is collaborating with the Louisiana Community and Technical Colleges System to promote current affordable learning projects on LCTCS campuses statewide. LOUIS is assisting LCTCS in data analysis, cooperative procurement strategies, and the facilitation of training workshops, while leveraging LCTCS libraries' knowledge of faculty and students' curriculum needs.
