Most of these open textbooks are licensed under a Creative Commons license. Textbooks available under the GNU Free Documentation License are noted. Under a GNU Free Document License, readers are free to copy and distribute the text; they are also free to modify it, which allows them to adapt the book to different needs, and to help develop new material.
