  • The goal of the LibreTexts project is to establish a vetted, comprehensive, and widely-used platform for the dissemination and implementation of customized course materials for post-secondary courses, while significantly reducing existing textbook costs for students. The LibreTexts project consists of 13 independently operating and interconnected “libraries” that focus on augmenting education in separate fields via a series of open-access online textbook environments that includes complementary ancillaries that advance diverse pedagogical methods and support multiple student learning styles. The LibreTexts libraries currently benefits over 60 million students per year and is arguably the most visited chemistry website in the world.
