Add LibreTexts ebooks and course material to Alma CZ
We would like to add LibreTexts vast collection of open educational resources (OER), including ebooks and course materials bibliographic records added to the Alma CZ: https://libretexts.org/ Then, libraries could add LibreTexts ebooks and course materials to course reserve lists in Alma and Primo.
LibreTexts is home to the largest collection of open educational resources online. Adding LibreTexts ebooks and course materials to the Alma CZ would ensure users have access to OER from across a wide variety of disciplines.

We will investigate adding this content alongside our inquiry to ingest this content in our Discovery products.

Yes, this 'idea' is very important as well. Increasingly, LibreText is the go-to for our instructional faculty.
