"*The emergence of Open Educational Resources (OER)* as a viable
option<http://www.hippocampus.org/>.
The shifts that digital libraries and user generated content have caused in
other IP based markets are now reshaping the educational publishing
landscape.  OER itself is a positive addition to the mix (many publishers
are embracing 
OER<http://www.pearson.com/news/2012/november/pearson-announces-project-blue-sky--a-cloud-based--content-servi.html?article=true>).
 However, in the face of "free"
content<http://www.educationbusinessblog.com/2012/10/friday_curmudgeon_oer_edition.html>
the
old distinctions between basal and supplemental are relatively unimportant.
 We need a voice for high quality, professionally produced, pro-grade tools
that save teachers
time<http://www.educationbusinessblog.com/2013/03/7_reasons_why_k12_education_pu.html>
and
save schools money."
