In most cases, it is easy to print out your OER for your students so that they can buy the printed copy from the bookstore and/or check it out from the WHCL Library. If you are using an open textbook from somewhere like OpenStax or Noba, the companies themselves will allow you to order a low-cost printed version of the book. If you are using an open textbook from another source that does not offer print copies, you can work with the Library and the Bookstore to choose a print option that works best for you.
