Approximately 75% of California State University, Dominguez Hills' undergraduate students receive financial need grants or scholarship aid. Our campus was the first CSU to create an integrated Affordable Learning Solutions (AL$) program. Our active AL$ initiative has run for 7 years and includes approximately 400 faculty (about 50% of our full and part time teaching faculty) offering library, OER or bookstore alternatives. Our number of OER faculty champions is growing with participation in the COOL4Ed Faculty Showcase sharing, California's AB 798 College Textbook Affordability Act program, and the CSU Course Redesign with Technology grant initiative. Increasingly, additional faculty express their interest in OER print textbook replacements, but many of them need help in locating appropriate OER for their classes.

AL$ is administered by the Library in partnership with the Academic Technology Department, Bookstore, and Faculty Development Center. Collaboration among these units to adopt affordable resources for our students has been strong, combining with each branch's unique services, tools, information, and structure to implement a campus-wide effort. We will share how each unit partners and contributes to the adoption and use of OERs, how adopted OERs are made accessible through multiple points of access and LMS design, as well as instruction and professional development efforts, our challenges, and the new initiatives that we will use to expand the awareness and use of OERs on campus. We will discuss our joint roles in implementing California's SB 1359 (notifying students in the course schedule of courses using all free all-digital materials), as well as a project to make our OERs discoverable in our new 23-campus unified library services and discovery platform so that we not only share our OER resources beyond the individual classroom but also across our campuses.
