We want to affect a culture change across our campus community, helping open education and library services become the new norm in MSU's approach to instruction. How do we do this? Through regular opportunities to learn more about and engage with open education.

We know that instructors are busy. Your time is valuable, and we appreciate the extra effort it takes to find new course materials and make changes. Our faculty are here to help you find the right resources for your courses. Reach out to us through any of our Ask the Library options or Schedule a One-on-One Consultation with one of our today.
In addition to personal support, we put our money behind this effort with an Annual Grant Program to help faculty take the time and space they need to change the affordability and quality of their courses.

We recognize and celebrate the work that goes into changing a class to open or Library materials. Each year, the Library sponsors an Excellence in Open Education Award as part of Spring Convocation. Members of our campus community can nominate someone who has impacted education at MSU with their work in open educational resources.
