OCAD University students spent $180 on a textbook that only has references for where to see pictures online
UPDATE: Dean Kathy Shailer sent a letter to students Friday morning saying she had met with people at Pearson and the bookstore and arrived at some good solutions. They are going to buy the custom text back from students at the end of the term and take it out of circulation. Pearson, an education and publishing company, is also going to provide students with copies of the Stokstad text, which contains many of the missing images, for free. This is so students no longer have to go online to see the images. Shailer also wrote they are working on solutions for next semester.
"My first objective is to have the material (text and images) of this phenomenal new course in students' hands in a format they feel they can use, so they can get on with the course now," wrote Shailer.
