  1. Good afternoon, Dr. McKay!

    I am a professor of criminal justice who is trying to incorporate OER in lieu of a required purchase text in an online class. I am currently looking for an OER text for Intro to Criminology for a Spring 2020 start date. I like your draft version of the OER criminology text and I was wondering the anticipated date of the final version being available to share with students.

    Thank you for your time,
    Dr. Dillard
