Get outdoors this summer and learn about the Kalamazoo community by attending a historic walking tour hosted by Lynn Houghton, regional history curator for Western Michigan University Libraries.
In May, the University Libraries awarded eight Open Educational Resources (OER) adoption grants and two OER creation grants, which are anticipated to save students in 11 courses more than $91,000 in textbook costs in one semester.
Open textbooks are high-quality educational resources licensed to allow instructors to use and adapt the content; students access that content for free online. With support from the grant, faculty and instructors replace higher-cost, traditional textbooks with these open textbooks.
KALAMAZOO, Mich.—To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, University Libraries is instituting changes in how and where to access resources and materials. The Swain Education Library in Sangren Hall will be closed for the 2020-21 academic year, while the Maybee Music and Dance Library, located in the Dalton Center, will close permanently.
The six courses were spread across disciplines in three different colleges—College of Arts and Sciences, Haworth College of Business and College of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
WMU Libraries’ special collections staff and librarian recently helped the Smithsonian Archives find answers about the designer of their iconic sunburst seal, Crimilda Pontes.
Portions of the collection will debut in fall 2020 with a series of exhibits and lectures.
Additional content and photos will be added as the project continues to be developed.
