NNLM NER Support Improves Access to Health Education

Posted Feb 12, 2020
Category: National

NNLM NER has provided support for Springfield Technical Community College’s Open Education Resources (OER) Initiative, which aims to make curriculum materials for health sciences courses freely available to students.

Through the project, qualified faculty members were awarded a stipend to redesign their textbooks, assignments, quizzes and other materials around free resources that are openly licensed or available for free through the college’s library and the National Library of Medicine. This effort was designed to help more students afford to complete their health sciences degrees.

Springfield Technical Community College is located in the ethically and racially diverse city of Springfield, Massachusetts.
