eTextbook Initiative

The University of Michigan eTextbook Initiative was launched in fall 2011 to moderate the upward trend in textbook costs we have seen over the past several years; and to develop a flexible system that combines traditional texts with new dynamic tools, enabling faculty to draw content from multiple sources to create a richer learning environment.

The University Library, ITS, Academic Affairs, and schools and colleges are collaborating in the initiative, as well as faculty and students serving in an advisory role.   The eTextbook landscape is complex, student expectations are evolving rapidly, and no single product/solution will meet all, or even most, needs. See News & Links for updates on this initiative.
