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 Course Shells area holds campus- and faculty-specific course areas. Each course shell is uniquely designed to address the needs of faculty and their students and typically contain text remixes (i.e., texts generated from existing content often with customized editing and/or content interspersed) that students and faculty can directly access for their class activities.
The Bookshelves area in this LibreTexts Library holds texts that are curated by the LibreTexts Development team and can be used either directly or as content for building customized remixes (i.e., texts that are generated from existing content often with customized editing and/or content interspersed) for use in campus Course Shells.
