Directed Discussion

Open Source Publications Amy Gorelick, University Press
Amy Gorelick presented information on open source publications including the benefits and drawbacks of open
access textbooks. Some benefits are that publications are free, hard copies are less expensive for students, students
are able to buy a book, print out individual pages or view the text online, the use of open source texts can fit into
any teaching style and can be put into a CMS system and used with a professor's own supplemental materials.
Additionally, open source texts are available forever. Some drawbacks to open source textbooks are that there are
still costs associated with creating an open source book such as having the book peer reviewed, copy edited and
typeset. There are fewer "bells and whistles" associated with open source books such as supplemental materials,
graphics, photos, test guides and instruction manuals. Gorelick also discussed incentives and intellectual property.
