OASES (Open Access for Student Educational Success)

OASES was established to save students money by offering alternatives to expensive commercial textbooks.  Many of our members are subject librarians and are led by a subject librarian.  We stand ready to assist interested departments and individual instructors by offering a model presently with three main components: Adopt, Adapt, and Create.
