About Open Textbooks at MacEwan

MacEwan University is committed to providing affordable, accessible and relevant teaching materials to its students. With this in mind, MacEwan Open Books was launched as a pilot project in 2019 with support from MacEwan University Library, the Students’ Association of MacEwan University (SAMU), and the Office of the Provost.

The service opened to all MacEwan faculty and staff members interested in open textbook creation in June of 2022.

Works hosted by MacEwan Open Books are done so in accordance with MacEwan University Library’s Terms of Use.
