Open Source Textbooks at the 2014 JMM Baltimore

Kent Morrison (American Institute of Mathematics) and I (Whitman College) are pleased to announce the session on Open Source Textbooks scheduled for the 2014 Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore, MD, January 15-18. Our hope is to use this session and this meeting to develop a community of open-source authors, adopters, reviewers and users. This blog can play a role in bringing these constituencies together. If you would like to be a part of this new community, click the "Follow by Email" link in the upper right of the blog.  If you have news to share about a particular project, please let me know (just click on my name at the end of the post) and we can post a blog entry or put a link on the side panel.

You may notice that this blog has been around for nearly 2 years.  I created it in advance of a session on open-source math texts at the 2012 Pacific Northwest Regional MAA meeting at the University of Portland, April 20-21.  That session was so well-received that Kent and I decided to propose a similar session at the JMM.
