ABOUT OPEN TEXTBOOKS
Open Textbooks are a type of open educational resource, are full, often peer reviewed, textbooks licensed to be freely used, edited, and distributed. Increasingly, faculty members all across the country are adopting open textbooks as one way to address the crisis of textbook affordability. Visit the Open Textbook Library to peruse peer-reviewed textbooks and decide if one of them is right for your course, or send your syllabus to your personal librarian to map your current materials to openly-licensed content for you to consider. Successful applicants will receive support from a team of librarians and instructional designers who will help you adopt or adapt openly-licensed material for your use.
