Our Mission

We are a community of practice for academic libraries and higher education partners to advance textbook affordability for our students through education, collaboration, and advocacy at the state level to support open education in Pennsylvania.

“I firmly believe that an educational opportunity should be open to all […] Choosing to use open resource materials and other affordable learning sources […] minimizes the barriers for individuals wanting to pursue higher education.”

Dr. Stephen Baker, Associate Professor of Psychology, Saint Francis University
