The New York Governor’s Office announced $8 million in funding to help cut the costs of textbooks at SUNY and CUNY schools.

The funding will be provided through the Open Resources Initiative which allows students to download, share, and edit high-quality books and other materials. 

The two university systems recently launched a joint website, Open.NYS, to assist faculty, librarians and instructional designers in making the switch to cost-free books and materials.
