The reasons for "opening" copyright, as well as the specific license agreements under which they are opened, are as varied as our authors. Perhaps a book was outdated enough to be put out of print, yet some people still needed the information it covered. Or the author or subject of a book felt strongly that it should be published under a particular open copyright. Maybe the book was written collectively by a particular community, as in the case of our Community Press books. But there's more to making Open Books available online than simply adopting an open license or giving up rights granted under copyright law.

A First Course in Linear Algebra (A Free Textbook) Open-Source Textbooks Instead I am concentrating recommendations and examples within the undergraduate mathematics curriculum, so please visit the Open Math Curriculum page. If you are linking to this site, please use that page for a broad list, or link to specifically for the Linear Algebra text. Thanks for your help publicizing open textbooks. This page contains some links to similar open-source textbooks. Notice however that a book that is free to download, but with a copyright that reserves the author's rights, is not really free. Global Text Project We maintain the chapters for all Global Text Project books in open document format with extensive use of style sheets so that we can quickly convert them into different media or formats. Global Text Project books have been internationalized and converted to a standard format using OpenOffice. You can access individual chapters in open document format and modify them to meet your needs. We control changes to the master version of each chapter, so please report corrections and suggestion changes to the Associate Editor.
