Open textbooks are textbooks that have been funded, published, and licensed to be freely used, adapted, and distributed. These books have been reviewed by faculty from a variety of colleges and universities to assess their quality. These books can be downloaded for no cost, or printed at low cost. All textbooks are either used at multiple higher education institutions; or affiliated with an institution, scholarly society, or professional organization.

Open Textbooks at OSU

The Wise OSU Libraries’ Open Textbook Initiative was made possible through a generous initial funding from Dr. James Wise. The high cost of textbooks is a major concern for OSU students and their parents. The goal of the Wise Initiative is to encourage faculty to consider open textbooks for adoption in their classroom.

Open Textbook Network

The OSU ePress is proud to be a member of the Open Textbook Network.

The Open Textbook Network (OTN) helps higher education institutions and systems advance the use of open textbooks and practices on their campuses.

OTN maintains the Open Textbook Library, the premiere resource for peer-reviewed academic textbooks. All of these textbooks are free, openly licensed, and complete; their adoption creates a measurable, positive impact on student success.

With our members, we move the open education conversation forward on local and national levels.
