ATG Special Issue Roundtable: Content for Courses

Building on the articles in the November ATG Special Issue Content for Courses, this roundtable discussion will dive deeper into the special role that libraries play in content supporting curricula in higher education. Today's content needs can range widely from the traditional articles or textbooks to multimedia events and MakerSpaces. While US libraries have traditionally not held textbooks for student use, they have long played a central role in ensuring that subscriptions support teaching and learning, providing extensive e-reserves, and even participating in course-pack creation. From OER to Alternative textbooks, instructors have more options than ever before - and more questions for their librarians. Many types of publishers and vendors are experimenting with new business models to support classroom use of content, from e-textbooks to course materials solutions. If you assist faculty in acquiring or managing content to support teaching and learning, then this is the session for you!
