Examines the affordability of college textbooks in California univ. and colleges. Increases in textbook prices have significantly outpaced median household income, which makes it more likely that some students will forgo or delay attending college because of the financial burden that post-secondary educ. imposes. For selected textbooks reviewed, publishers released a new ed. every 3-9 years on average; however, faculty members stated that revisions to textbooks are often minimal and are not always warranted. Finally, the system offices for the colleges and univ. have explored possible solutions for the rising costs of textbooks, including open educational resources and the Digital Marketplace.
