From The Daily Herald via Library Link of the Day:
Dismayed at the rising cost of textbooks, Hammond has quit using textbooks in his courses. He has redesigned the courses he teaches to provide his students with a more varied selection of source material for a lower cost.
"I want them to understand where information comes from," Hammond said. "It's a skill they're going to need."
As a librarian who teaches research skills I say "Hoorah!"
As a parent who is paying for expensive textbooks for the entling's classes, I say "Double Hoorah!"
