This site is a repository of open textbooks created by British Columbia educators for B.C. post-secondary students. It started with five texts created in 2012 under a pilot project for the Online Collaborative Programs, and will grow to contain the texts created under Canada’s first official Open Textbook Project, which was announced in October 2012 and is led by BCcampus.
If you’re looking for information on the Open Textbook Project itself: the process of creating the textbooks, information on what open textbooks are, who’s using them and how open licensing works; please see our complementary site at open.bccampus.ca.
The BCCampus Open Textbook project is using the open source book publishing tool PressBooks to power book production and this online catalog.
