The Open Textbook Network is an alliance of higher education institutions, systems, and consortia working to more fully realize their potential by engaging in the open education ecosystem. The network will expand its community-building efforts around best practices, infrastructure, and common-good resources through engagement with members and collaborative partners. These efforts can reduce the cost of college and advance learning in postsecondary courses by ensuring that the development and implementation of OER, including open textbooks, are supported within and across institutions.

for support of the Open Textbook Network  
The Open Textbook Network is a community of over 1,300 colleges and universities working to advance open education. Its focus of the last few years on building a community — both in size and common understanding — has positioned it well to leverage its collective resources to more directly focus on addressing issues of inequity and exclusion in higher education. The network will accomplish this through working directly with higher education faculty to develop and disseminate open pedagogies and practices, and by working with state and system leaders to support and encourage the systematic implementation of these practices.
