What is Faculty Select?

Faculty Select is a new, easy-to-use service to help you find books that your students can access for no cost. As a faculty member, you can easily find and access Open Educational Resources (OER), as well as preview and request access from your library to DRM-free e-books from top academic publishers to support your course curriculum and enable student success.

Access to Faculty Select is provided through grant funding from the office of Equity, Inclusion, & Community Engagement. 

How does it work?

Faculty Select is easy-to-use and works like other search engines and databases. Search broadly for a subject or course topic, a field of study, or area of interest, then browse the list of results and use the filters to limit by specific kinds of materials. 

Here is a link to a flyer with more information, and here is a link to a tutorial video that walks you through how to use Faculty Select.
