The UCLA Library recently launched the Affordable Course Materials Initiative, which incentivizes instructors to use low-cost or free alternatives to expensive course materials. These can include open-access scholarly resources, Library-licensed and owned resources, and learning objects and texts that faculty create themselves.
Applications are now being accepted for courses to be taught during the the 2013-14 academic year. A total of $10,000 is available: Five awards of $1,000 each for instructors teaching courses with enrollments of fewer than two hundred students, and two awards of $2,500 each for instructors teaching courses with enrollment of two hundred or more students.
Further information on the application procedure and deadlines is available on the initiative website.
