NOTE to faculty: please be aware that even if you are using OER or other free materials in your course you still need to inform the Bookstore what you are using, and in a timely manner. The information will be used in the course schedule so students can make informed decisions about classes, and will be used by DSPS to make accommodations for students who need them.
