Open textbooks image

Have you ever considered replacing your course textbook with something more affordable and flexible? In this hands-on workshop, explore open textbooks (free online textbooks released under an open copyright license) and open educational resource collections, including supplementary materials such as quizzes and slides for specific courses. Workshop facilitators from the Campus Library will discuss options for modifying and remixing open textbooks within the bounds of copyright and Creative Commons licenses, and demonstrate how to do this using Pressbooks (book production software).
