Free the Textbook. Educate the World.

Portland State University Library aspires to make higher education more affordable for students at PSU and beyond. PDX Open, our open textbook publishing initiative, is part of this effort.

Now we hope to grow PDX Open. The Library has submitted a proposal to the Knight News Challenge, which asksĀ How might libraries serve 21st century information needs?

Our answer:

We will make higher education more affordable for students everywhere by growing the number and subject range of open access textbooks.
