Open SUNY Textbooks

Instructors and learners who are on the lookout for free educational materials may want to check out Open SUNY Textbooks. First launched in 2012, this resource is an open-access textbook publishing initiative of the State University of New York Libraries that is managed by Milne Library Publishing at SUNY Geneseo. At the link above, readers will find (as of this write-up) approximately 40 college-level textbooks and other open education resources (OER), roughly half of which are original textbooks published by this initiative and all of which are openly licensed and available to download for free. These resources cover a broad range of disciplines, from STEM subjects like mathematics and microbiology to humanities subjects like film production and poetry. There are also resources to support general learners, such as guides on information literacy and academic writing. While visitors can browse the collection by author, subject, or SUNY affiliation, it may be more helpful to conduct a keyword search or to view all the resources on one page by clicking Browse Textbooks. In 2017, Open SUNY Textbooks was selected to partner with OpenStax (see the 3-22-2019 Scout Report), another major OER initiative.
