Open Education Network (Previously Open Textbook Network)
MOBIUS joined the Open Education Network, an alliance of hundreds of colleges, universities, and consortia partners working together to advance the use of open textbooks in higher education, in the summer of 2017. Textbook affordability is a major concern on college campuses throughout the United States and this is an exciting partnership that allows us to provide member libraries with tools and services that will assist them in building sustainable open textbook programs on their campuses. MOBIUS membership means that all of our member libraries will have access to OEN resources and trainings.
A new membership type from the OEN that allows institutions that are members of an existing OEN consortium to gain the benefits of institutional membership including direct access to data, programming, and resources at a low cost, while still maintaining the benefits of a consortium membership.
