The Unizin consortium is committed to providing accessible, high-quality course materials at lower costs, while preserving faculty choice. Because Unizin negotiates with publishers for lower-cost materials, consortium members are able to offer etexts at significant price cuts to students.
By operating Engage, Unizin’s - and IU eTexts' - eReader service, the consortium provides not only a platform for hosting publisher content, but also open educational resources (OERs), including no-cost etexts.
Additionally, Unizin members have access to Pressbooks: a service that, at IU, allows anyone at the institution to author their own content (such as etexts), or to import, customize, and share OERs and faculty-produced materials, content licenses permitting.
