Digital textbooks are amazing educational tools. What resources can librarians enlist to help make them? What are the rights considerations associated with them? The projects developed by Creative Commons, OER Commons, and Rice University in conjunction with many others, such as OpenStax and Connexions, provide educators with the means to make high-quality free digital textbooks. Librarians can play a vital role in relation to digital textbooks in academia.
