EBSCO Faculty Select
EBSCO Faculty Select empowers academic libraries to directly support textbook affordability efforts. Through a single interface, faculty can search and access quality open textbooks, Open Educational Resources (OER), EBSCO’s eBook Open Access (OA) Collection and request access to unrestricted library e-books from top academic publishers. By leveraging free open materials and low-cost library-licensed resources, faculty can transform their courses and reduce the cost burden for students.
Faculty Select brings OER and DRM-free e-books together for purchase or integration into courseware. With this system, we’re able to help faculty discover library content that is appropriate for their courses and offer students the most affordable options.
