Dr. Gerald Brasington wins the SC Open Educational Resources award.

Congratulations to Dr. Gerald Brasington on winning the SCOER (SC Open Educational Resources) award. This award is given to faculty who strive to make educational researches more accessible to students to cut down on financial burdens. Award winners are selected by Library staff and also members of the Student Government.

Dr. Brasington shares his experience: "I am a first-generation college and first-generation medical school graduate. Purchasing extremely expensive books caused financial hardship for me and my parents. I have dedicated my career to making materials low-cost or free so today's students will not face the same hardships as I did. Education is a gift, and I want to give that gift to my students without the fear or worry about affording the necessary materials.”

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
