Want to learn open textbooks? 

Open textbooks are free for anyone to view and download in an online format. They are developed through traditional peer review or vetted by experts. And have an open copyright license that allows the material to be shared and adapted! Many instructors use open textbooks as an alternative to expensive commercial textbooks.

The Library has compiled information and resources and developed an online Guide to Finding & Using Open Textbooks. Faculty are encouraged to explore this resource at

If you need help finding appropriate open access course materials, Amy Lorencz, Metadata and Copyright Librarian ( is happy to assist.
