Print-on-Demand Information

Print-on-demand is a great way for students to get print copies of open resources, if they so desire. Unlike traditionally-published textbooks, students can have both print and online versions with minimal cost. (For example, a new information literacy text costs $200; an OER printed via Lulu cost $13.61.) For more information about how to use these resources, contact Alexa Hight, Scholarly Communication and Copyright Librarian.
