Reading list solutions help faculty incorporate a wide variety of assets into the classroom. And when integrated to the library services platform and LMS, they allow faculty to easily utilize existing library assets as well as OER, and other freely available content in the classroom.
Data drives decisions about which resources to use in the classroom, and how the library can further support course materials. Which assets are popular (or not) among students for a specific class? How well is the library collection utilized in the classroom, and which departments are making use of which resources? Which resources are students paying for today, and could the library explore making them, or near-equivalents, available? These questions touch on the broader issues of learning affordability and OER, optimal resource utilization, and the management and distribution of e-resources in an increasingly online world.
