Open_SUNY_logo_smToday, 10 new eTextbooks were added to the open educational resources collection of the NCLOR. Open SUNY Textbooks is an open access textbook publishing initiative established by State University of New York libraries and supported by SUNY Innovative Instruction Technology Grants.

The pilot launched in 2012, providing an editorial framework and service to authors, students and faculty, and establishing a community of practice among libraries.

The subjects included in this resource series are: Academic Success, Computer Programming, Education, Humanities, Information Literacy, Mathematics, Psychology, Public Administration, and Science.

The ebooks in this collection are all made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License   Creative Commons License
