Affordable Learning Committee: About Us

Information and Resources from the Affordable Learning Committee of the Academic Libraries of Indiana (ALI)

What We Do

The charge of the Affordable Learning Committee is to provide the communication structure needed to build awareness and share resources about alternatives to traditional course materials, such as open educational resources (OER) and library-licensed content, among ALI members; to facilitate educational opportunities about techniques and best practices for implementation, focusing on the library’s role; and to research and recommend further collaboration-based opportunities to the Board.
