  • 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 12 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. Central to its success is the construction and adoption of faculty specific and freely accessible "LibreTexts" that substitute for costly conventional textbooks in post-secondary courses. These are assembles by incorporating content from an extensive network of existing chemistry and broader materials.
