Saving students money
Library resources are embedded in Canvas course sites, making them easily accessible by students. This, along with multi-use e-book purchases, borrowing course material content, and publishing open textbooks has potentially saved students $3.6 million in fiscal year 2020, and the potential savings over the past five years totals $12.9 million.
Improving graduation rates
A five-year correlational study of 5,368 first-year undergraduate students at the University of Minnesota demonstrated that using the Libraries electronic resources corresponds with a 92% increase in the odds of graduation in four years. See z.umn.edu/libgradrate
