Opening remarks from Library Dean Ruth Kifer, President Mohammad Qayoumi, and Provost Ellen Junn.

The rising cost of textbooks concerns students and faculty. Initiated by the CSU Chancellor's Office, the Affordable Learning Solutions campaign was created to provide easy, direct access to inexpensive, high-quality alternatives.

At San José State University, Affordable Learning Solutions is coordinated by the University Library, Center for Faculty Development and eCampus. It aims to provide information on how to lower the cost of classroom materials for students by offering faculty a variety of low-cost and no-cost educational resources, such as Flat World Knowledge, Digital Library Services, MERLOT, and the Digital Marketplace. Other resources include ebooks owned by the library, digital textbooks, open courseware, publishers' repositories, the book rental program at the bookstore, and textbooks on reserve in the library.
