LCC calls these resources Alternative Educational Resources (AER), and they include all course resources that cost students less than $30 to
use. Some AER courses may include resources that are not openly licensed but still
reduce costs for students, such as used or inexpensive books, library resources, and
other alternatives to costly commercial textbooks.
