To address rising textbook costs, California’s governor gave $20,000 to each community college to lay the foundation for establishing zero-textbook cost (ZTC) degree pathways. This project assists in building that foundation for Mendocino College by streamlining the textbook adoption process for faculty and increasing the accessibility and visibility of course materials in the discovery layer. By doing this, there are now centralized access points available to all users to find course materials. This project not only improves UX and UI of the library’s ILS, but also compiles existing information to later be used by the Institutional Research Office.
