The first, OER Summer Grants, provides research funding for faculty who adopt an open textbook, modify an existing one, or create new supplemental material. The second, UNT Open Texts, is a partnership with the UNT Press that provides research funding for faculty who author a new open textbook to be published jointly by the Press and Libraries. These specifics of these programs will be presented.
