Bemidji State University Campus Open Textbook Project

Bemidji State University


Bemidji State University embarked on a three phase program to increase faculty awareness and adoption of open textbooks on their campus. In phase one administrative staff explored open textbook repositories and options for faculty adoption. In phase two, information gathered in phase one was shared with faculty across the Bemidji campus, and exploration was further encouraged. In phase three faculty interested in adopting an open textbook were provided staff support and resources to make implementation possible.
