The term Open Education Resource (OER) refers to any educational material that is freely available for use by anyone. The freedom of OER refers not only to cost, but the freedom to retain, reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute that material (the Wiley 5 Rs). In contrast with commercial textbooks, OER textbooks never go out of print (unlike a certain calculus textbook currently in use in Alberta), and both teachers and students are free to share, copy, keep, and update their textbooks as needed. In the past 5 years there has been a proliferation of high quality open mathematics textbooks, as well as websites that maintain lists of
textbooks along with reviews by educators who have used them. We will highlight some of the best  websites and textbooks, and discuss how to access, adopt, and modify OER textbooks.
