Since mid-2015 an informal group of stakeholders from across campus, co-led by the UNT Libraries and UNT's learning enhancement office, has met occasionally to talk through how the university can support alternatives to conventional textbooks while recognizing the many vested interests on campus in the current system. The UNT Libraries launched a pilot program on open textbooks in late 2016, which included joining the Open Textbook Network and brainstorming about ways that we might continue to promote open textbooks and evaluate effectiveness.
