Where can I get a print copy?

Some publications from UMN Libraries Publishing are available in print. However, most Open Textbooks are not available in print but can be downloaded by each user and printed. If you are an instructor/bookstore and would like to provide print copies to students, please see the Creative Commons license attached to each book for allowances and limitations.

Are there teaching materials available for Open Textbooks?

Information is available at the end of each book.

We can make your supplementary materials available to other users.
