Dr. Amy Smith and Dr. Rebecca Swenson (pictured above) both received a Partnership for Affordable Content grant from the University of Minnesota in order to eliminate or significantly lower the cost of course materials for students. The grant allowed the professors to work with a team of librarians to build high quality content options for their courses as an alternative to costly commercial textbooks and other expensive materials. When aggregated, their efforts have resulted in approximately $6,500 in savings for students in one semester.
