Both individual faculty and teams that teach several sections of the same course are eligible to apply.

Proposal requirements, submission and selection criteria and examples of open texts already in use are available on the K-State Libraries website.

For questions about the initiative, assistance with locating or editing your resource or to discuss approaches applicants can use in their proposal, please contact Brian Lindshield, associate professor of human nutrition; Andy Bennett, department head and professor of mathematics; or the Center for the Advancement of Digital Scholarship, K-State Libraries.
