Tell the Bookstore! Already planning to change your courses to OER or other open access materials? It is important that you report this to the MSU Bookstore. The Bookstore highly supports faculty moving to OER or other more affordable options! They still need to know what materials you are adopting. Whatever you choose, they help students access them, digitally and physically. They are also anticipating faculty needing to change summer and/or fall book orders. If you make a change, just let them know. They will work with you to get that information out to students.
