Open Textbooks provide opportunities for librarians to assist others in open-resource literacy, to select, organize, and evaluate open textbooks and other open resources, and to continue a long culture of sharing on a global scale.

Academic Librarian since 1994 at Texas A&M-Kingsville ('94-'01) and at Drake University ('02-present). I teach "Information Literacy" and "Copyright Issues in the U.S." as well as serve as the coordinator for copyright services offered by my library.
How have you used open textbooks?
I have not found one suitable to my teaching needs - yet. I am currently writing a textbook about copyright issues for undergraduate students. In the future, I may write (or edit) one on Information Literacy.
