A couple of months ago we shared a collection of some of the best websites that offer open digital textbooks (e.g. OER Commons, Open Textbook Library, MERLOT, TextBookGo, Bookboon..etc).  Today we are adding another equally important resource that features tons of open textbooks. Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources embeds a wide variety of digital textbooks covering various subject areas. These include : Art, Math, Music, Psychology, Science, Physics, Education, Chemistry, Computer Science, History, Language and Communications, Economics and many more.

Most of these textbooks are under Creative Commons (CC) open licenses or GNU-Free Document License.’Others are U.S. government documents in the public domain (PD). Many other textbooks are free to view online but are NOT OPEN for reuse and customization.’ As of right now, the link to the Art category in the list is not working. All other links are working properly. Check them out and share with us your feedback. Enjoy
