Page history last edited by Gayla S. Keesee 15 years, 1 month ago

E-book stands for electronic book. Words that are usually printed on paper medium are now available on screens that can be read off the computer or laptop, handhelds or PDAs and also some special ebook devices.


Wikibooks is a Wikimedia community for creating a free library of educational textbooks that anyone can edit. Wikibooks began on July 10, 2003; since then Wikibooks has grown to include over 33,368 pages in a multitude of textbooks created by volunteers.


Initiated in early 2006, the Global Text Project engages the collective intelligence of academics and practitioners in making high-quality,  editorially-reviewed texts  available under a Creative Commons license.  Books can be tailored for the needs of individual countries, or communities. They will be continually updated by their creators and, importantly, by the community of academics and students that use them.
