Affordable Course Content

How cool is this "Affordable Course Content" award the Libraries are partnering on to offer at VCU? https://www.library.vcu.edu/services/faculty/course-content/ VCU James Branch Cabell Library

The high cost of course materials is a concern for both students and parents, and it has also been shown to place many students at academic risk. "Affordable course content" describes any free or low-cost educational resources that can serve as alternatives to high-cost resources.
