Open Textbooks Adapted and Created by B.C. Faculty

Retiring the Open Textbook Theme

With our next Pressbooks update, we will be retiring the Open Textbook theme. Book administrators should switch their open textbooks in pressbooks.bccampus.ca to one of the other available themes in preparation for this change. We recommend Clarke, McLuhan, or Jacobs.
