Filter options include:

  • Faculty Reviewed – choose open textbooks that have been reviewed and approved by instructors and faculty from B.C. and other provinces
  • Adopted – find open textbooks that have been selected by instructors and added to their curriculum

  • Ancillary Resources – open textbooks with additional components, which could include quizzes, case studies, simulations, multi-media content, and other tools to help the learning process

Add to the collection

If the open textbook you’re looking for is not in our collection, this could be a great opportunity to recommend an existing open textbook in your subject area. Contact us through the Suggestion for the Collection form, so we can review your idea and take steps toward making it available to the students and faculty of B.C.
