Affordable Learning Georgia (ALG), a University System of Georgia (USG) initiative within GALILEO, Georgia's Virtual Library, received funding in fiscal year 2015 to lower the price of textbooks for USG students. Within this one fiscal year, ALG has saved students $9 million in textbook costs over the next two fiscal years. Major projects include Textbook Transformation Grants, where faculty replace a commercial textbook with open, affordable, and library-provided materials, and supporting eCore, the USG's Online Core Curriculum, in implementing a free textbook replacement for all of its courses.

This presentation will provide a one-year retrospective on ALG and its projects, including lessons learned, testimonials from students and faculty, partnerships for scale and quality, training programs and instructional resources created, and reports on student success metrics such as course retention and progression.
