OpenStax College

All textbook content is licensed under Creative Commons Attribution Licenses and the textbooks can be modified to suit different purposes by users. Specifically, the books use Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) License, which only requires attribution.

- College Physics (released June 2012)
- Introduction to Sociology (released June 2012)
- Biology (released April 2013)
