Health Sciences, Nursing, and Medicine Faculty-

Funding of $1000-$10,000 is now available to faculty who adopt, adapt or create free or low-cost textbooks and course materials for their classes. Priority will be given to grants for high-impact courses with a large number of students, and to courses with exceptionally high textbook costs. The amount awarded to successful applicants will be based upon the amount of savings to each student, and the number of students in the class.

Grants are available for several different activities, including:

  • Adopting, adapting and/or creating open and affordable materials
  • Reviewing open textbooks
  • Mentoring faculty new to A&OER

Click here to access the grant application. Applications are due December 8 for Spring 2018 classes, and April 15 for Summer & Fall 2018 classes.For additional information, please visit the A&OER initiative website.

Reach out to Taira Meadowcroft if you are interested in incorporating OER in your health sciences, nursing, and medicine courses.

The article was published in Journal of the American College of Cardiology (impact factor 19.896 in 2016).

Scan & Deliver: Now Only a Click Away!

We are excited to announce that starting today and running through the end of the semester, our existing Scan & Deliver service is now only a click away!

You may have noticed a new button under an item’s location in the MERLIN catalog:

Once ‘Request Item’ is clicked, a new pop-up window will display allowing members of the MU community to request either the delivery of a scanned item from the book–such as a specific journal article, chapter, or any part of other printed publications found in the university libraries–or to simply request that ILL@MU place a hold on the whole book for you!

Not all library resources are available through this special pilot project, but it does include materials from all campus branch libraries as well as the off-campus book depositories. For more information on our Scan & Deliver service, please see ILL@MU’s Scan & Deliver page.

We feel that this will be a great addition to our existing Scan & Deliver service, requesting articles via Twitter using #MizzouPDF, and of course receiving articles from the many databases available through Find it@MU. Please give it a try!
