OER and Bookstore Challenges and Recommendations
F2012 • Start of our major OER implementation • OER materials published through local publisher • Sold in bookstore
Challenges • Not enough workbooks were being ordered • Students were having to wait for workbooks • Students were not allowed to preorder workbooks • Bookstore markup (40%ish) still applies
Adjustment for Spring 2013 • Met with bookstore and publisher reps • Bookstore agreed to order more books if publisher would guarantee returns of unused copies • Bookstore markup (40%ish) still applies
Recommendations • Communicate early with bookstore and involve them in planning • Help them understand goals of OER and how they can be a part of helping students • Be willing to compromise (i.e. 40% markup remained in place) to help them meet their bottom line • Touch base with them each semester to keep communication lines open

Collaborating with the campus Bookstore Collaborative Statistics • 1994 – 2007: for profit text; – $38 bookstore cost; $50 student cost • #1 text sold at college in terms of quantity • 2008 – 2014: OER text – with hard copy purchase option • First open textbook used at college
Logistics: 2008+ • Met with Bookstore manager: – Ordering hard copies for faculty • limited desk copies available from a grant • added <$1 to each hard copy cost sold to cover faculty, library, tutoring center copies – Expected great loss of sales • Initially sales went up, students used print copy as workbook • Each year more students using only online or pdf versions – QOOP/Lulu cost under $30 for direct purchase – 15-20 % Discount for Bookstore ordering in volume – Bookstores still charge markup 24-28%
Outcomes PROS • Still #1 text sold on campus in terms of quantity • Still good relations with Bookstore • Reduced cost to students • Saved students > $1m CONS • Decreased sales at decreased price.
