March 2020 update: The UNC System is a consortial member of the Open Textbook Network. The OTN recently created an “Allied Institution” category for individual institutions within consortia. Here are Allied Institution benefits, an FAQ for potential Allied Members and a more formal proposal. Institutions in the UNC System consortium can sign up for Allied Membership using this form. Membership (and access) will begin on July 1, 2020. Please note that for the UNC System, institutions will sign up on their own and manage their own contract and invoicing.
Initially named the Textbook Affordability Working Group, the group completed its original charge to investigate possible system-wide textbook affordability initiatives and report to ULAC by December 1, 2016. Following ULAC’s receipt of an AIMS award in January 2017, the group was reconstituted as the Educational Resources Affordability Committee and charged with assisting in the implementation of the award. Following the completion of that award, the Committee's charge is to support and expand educational resources affordability initiatives within the UNC System through resource sharing, collaboration and program development.
