More than Just Textbooks

Use the links below to find textbooks, as well as a variety of materials that supplement both the textbook and your teaching. For a deeper dive into finding, using and evaluating resources, along with some pointers on course redesign, take a look at the Zero-Cost Textbook Adoption Guide, created by the PALSave Team.

Three Reasons to Use Open Educational Resources

  • The high cost of textbooks means students can't always afford them and may be going without.
  • They are created by educators for educators, using the peer review process.
  • You can edit, adapt, and modify them, creating a custom resource for your course.
