 California Open Source Textbook Project

The California Open Source Textbook Project (COSTP) began in 2001 as a collaborative - a public/private undertaking; it was the first organization created to address the high cost, content range, and consistent shortages of K-12 textbooks in California. The latter goal is currently well on its way to being accomplished. COSTP has evolved over recent years to establish and spread the Open Textbook, Open Educational Resource (OER), Open Courseware, and Open Education memes to K-12 and postsecondary educational institutions, worldwide. Many Open source textbook and courseware projects have started up since COSTP's inception.

Community College Open Textbook Collaborative (CCOTC)

The Community College Open Textbook Collaborative (CCOTC), funded by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, is a collection of colleges, governmental agencies, educational nonprofits, and other education-related organizations. The collaborative provides training for instructors adopting open resources, peer reviews of open textbooks, an online professional network, support for authors opening their resources, and other services. Our activities include listing open textbooks by subject, peer reviews and accessibility reviews of open textbooks, encouraging communities of practice, and much more.


Flat World Knowledge

Flat World Knowledge books might feel like your current book for a minute. They are written by leading experts and are peer-reviewed, edited, and highly developed. They are supported by test banks, .ppt notes, instructor manuals, print desk copies, and knowledgeable service representatives. There the similarity ends. Instead of $100 plus, our books are FREE online. Students enter the URL they're given by their instructor and start reading. It's that easy. No tricks. No popup ads. No "a premium subscription is needed for that". In fact, our free online books go beyond what standard print editions provide with integrated audio, video, and interactive features, powerful search capabilities, and more.

Global Text Project

Global Text Project publishs open content electronic textbooks that are freely available from this website. We focus on content development and web distribution, and we will work with relevant authorities to facilitate dissemination by other means when bandwidth is unavailable or inadequate. The goal is to make textbooks available to the many who cannot afford them.

Browse through the most popular titles, recommendations, or recent reviews from our visitors. Perhaps you'll find something interesting in the special collections. There are more than 29,000 eBooks available for Kindle, Nook, iPad and most other eReaders, and they're all free! If you still can't decide what to read you might want to browse through some covers to see what strikes your fancy. Or try the Recent Additions to the library, with genre filter.

Open Textbook Catalog

This catalog is a resource to help connect professors with some of the top open textbooks currently available. Since open textbooks are based online (print copies are optional), they can be difficult to locate or evaluate for quality. This catalog provides information to help make finding a free, open textbook less time consuming for instructors. Click here to download a PDF list of the titles in the catalog.

Open Text Book is a registry of textbooks (and related materials) which are open that is free for anyone to use, reuse and redistribute. It is run by the Open Knowledge Foundation . The domain name was kindly donated to us by Steve Coast of Open Street Map.

SUNY Open Textbooks

Textbook Revolution

Textbook Revolution is a student-run site dedicated to increasing the use of free educational materials by teachers and professors. We want to get these materials into classrooms. On this site you'll find links and reviews of textbooks and select educational resources. Some of the books are PDF files, others are viewable online as e-books, or some are simply web sites containing course or multimedia content.
