Applications Being Accepted for UCLA Library’s Affordable Course Materials Initiative

Friday, March 15th, 2013

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.


Dec. 2 Workshop on Using Copyrighted Material in the Classroom

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

Do you provide copies of entire articles to students in your classroom or course Web site? Do you post materials on your course management system or use your CMS or Web site as a virtual classroom? Simply because the content is for educational purposes does not mean that you can copy and distribute it without considering whether that is consistent with the U.S. Copyright Act.

Come to this free workshop for UCLA faculty to learn from campus legal and copyright experts how to provide the best experiences for your students without violating copyright.  Advance registration is required.
