California moves forward on free digital textbook access

Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation that will provide popular textbooks to California students as free downloads.  The first stage includes State funding for 50 open-source digital textbooks.  The second stage will be to establish an Open Source host/library.  The goal is to lighten the high prices students now pay for textbooks.

It will be interesting to see if any art history texts make the cut – the images constitute a big can of worms…
