Open Access Textbook Initiative


Oregon State University is helping its faculty members develop textbooks in their fields that will be freely accessible online to any student in the world. Publication of the four books will take place in 2014-15. They will be available in four interactive formats – HTML, PDF, iBooks and ePub – as well as in a print-on-demand edition.

The Open Access Textbook Initiative is a collaboration between OSU Libraries, OSU Press and OSU Extended Campus that provides financial, technical and editorial support for faculty members to create “open” texts that aim to reduce costs for students and further position Oregon State as a leader in research and teaching.
