Ann Agee

San Jose State University
Faculty Director of Collections
Since 2012, I have been a coordinator of the Affordable Learning Solutions (ALS) campaign at San Jose State University (SJSU). ALS is a California State University initiative designed to encourage faculty to adopt low-cost classroom materials to replace expensive textbooks. These alternatives include online course readers, open e-textbooks, open courseware, and other digital resources. In this position, I have organized workshops, webinars, grant programs and other forms of outreach to campus faculty to help them learn about open educational resources and how OER can be used in the classroom. In addition to serving as ALS coordinator, I am a liaison librarian to the Department of Accounting & Finance and School of Information at SJSU.
