The RCC Library's electronic resources can also be used as textbook alternatives or supplemental materials to enhance delivery of your course. Chapters or pages within an e-book, as well as articles from an e-journal, can be downloaded and linked to directly from the Library's collection. For more on linking to the Library's electronic resources, see the Linking to Electronic Resources tab on the Faculty Services and Resources site.
Open textbooks are materials that are freely available, usually through a Creative Commons license, to download, modify, and print in various formats.
Open textbooks are more affordable than commercially available textbooks and enable student education budgets to stretch further, giving students greater flexibility in their education choices. Faculty can readily customize open textbooks to better meet their local teaching and learning needs. Lastly, open textbooks provide pricing, flexibility and customization advantages that commercially available textbooks currently do not provide.
There are many sites that contain open source textbooks. The tabs in this box provide links to some of these. You can also search the Internet for more; good keywords to use include "open source textbooks" "open textbooks" and "open electronic resources".
