The cost of college textbooks has risen at 300% the rate of inflation for decades, with a 90% cost increase over the last decade alone. Students increasingly report not purchasing textbooks due to high costs, and this trend is widely recognized to negatively impact student learning outcomes.
#textbookbroke is a national campaign aimed at informing students about Open Textbooks, Open Educational Resources, and alternatives to traditional textbooks. It is also aimed at empowering students to provide feedback on their course materials and encourage their instructors to explore more affordable alternatives.
University Libraries and the Student Government Association are partnering to bring the #textbookbroke campaign to FSU. Stop by our event table in Dirac library to share how much you spent on textbooks this term and learn about textbook affordability initiatives at FSU!
