Open Matters

45 free and open textbooks from MIT OpenCourseWare

Here at MIT OpenCourseWare, we publish a lot of course materials.  Tens of thousands of lecture notes, assignments, exams and other documents.  It’s a huge amount of content in which many gems can hide. Open textbooks, in particular, have tended to get lost in the mix, but we’ve known for some time we have a good trove of them on the site.

Now we are able to present a list of over 45 open textbooks (and textbook-like resources) currently available on the MIT OpenCourseWare site, at the new OCW Online Textbooks page.

Dig in.  There’s a lot of reading to be done!
