Digital Editions and eBooks

Complete digital versions of all our books in several formats (downloadable PDF, online PDF Reader, HTML, and now increasingly also in XML format) are made freely available online on our website and a number of third-party platforms, such as Google Reader, Open Editions, and textbooks platforms such as Merlot and the Open Textbook Library.
