Open textbooks can help alleviate the burden of textbook costs for students and provide faculty with content that can be customized for their course. Open textbooks are full, real textbooks, used by many faculty across the country, and licensed to be freely used, edited, and distributed.
Capacity is limited, and open textbooks are not available for all subjects. Preference will be based on textbook subject area availability.
