Thanks to funding from the Government of Saskatchewan, University of Regina Press is able to develop new and adapt existing open textbooks and educational resources, and offer them online for free. Our Open Textbook Publishing Program provides students and instructors with easily accessible, peer-reviewed resources, and aims to democratize the learning experience by saving students the cost of textbooks, improving student grades and reten­tion, and giving instructors the ability to customize their course materials.

To access these books, visit University of Regina’s Open Access webpage at, or our website at These texts are available to download or to read online in a variety of formats, including pdf, ePub, and html—free of charge.

The Open Textbook Publishing Program would not be possible without the support and insight of many different stakeholders at the University of Regina.
