Using open source software with minimal overhead, our small college Library is able to publish open textbooks, literary journals, historical reprints, and community authored works in multiple formats. Our Open SUNY Textbooks initiative evolved from one small college library, three part-time staff, very little funding, an unwieldy website platform, no digitized book production, no statistics, no author participation, and many unanswered questions like, “What are open textbooks and why should we care?” to: an open educational service with multiple partner colleges across the SUNY (State University of New York) system, eager authors, an executive director, an advisory board, a "fully operational publishing battlestation," and nearly 250,000 downloads of our textbooks to date.
