Learning Materials Costs to Students

Academic staff invest considerable efforts in recommending high-quality learning resources that are closely aligned with the learning outcomes for each course. However, the cost of learning materials has become a concern. This memo highlights resources available through Libraries and Cultural Resources, the Copyright Office, Bound and Copied and the Bookstore that can assist in alleviating some of the high costs for learning materials.
