LibreTexts

The LibreTexts project is a multi-institutional collaborative effort to improve education at all levels of higher learning by developing Open Access Resources. The libraries are part of a huge network that provides not just single textbooks, but an infinitely large library through which new texts can be developed & shared.

The Libretexts are accessible to everyone on the Internet completely free. Always up to date, the Libretexts platform ensures consistency, the newest info available, and allows instructors to fine tune a project for their needs.

Features:

  • The UC Davis STEMWiki Hyperlibrary, consisting of seven interconnected “STEMWikis,” focuses on augmenting post-secondary education in multiple STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields.
  • The main advantage of the STEMWiki approach is to capitalize on the efforts of both students and faculty to create freely-available textbook substitutes.
  • The STEMWikis are developed by a multi-disciplinary team of faculty and students representing Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Geology, Statistics, Engineering, Molecular and Cell Biology; and Evolution and Ecology that build and connect individual STEMWikis as “Hubs” in the developing Hyperlibrary network.
