Textbooks on Reserve in the Libraries

WMU Open Educational Resources

In addition to the University Libraries textbook reserve program, we are also leading a campus-wide effort to promote open education resources. Detailed information about that program is available on the WMU Open Education Resources site. Below are some quick facts and basic resources to get you started.
