The COT Collection

The COT Collection offers curated open-licensed textbooks combining print and electronic formats in one affordable package. We select from among the very best open textbooks that are applicable to the most popular lower-division college courses. Each package includes a high-quality softbound book and an electronic version that works with our own full-featured e-reader.

COT Education is committed to providing superior materials within a business model that benefits students and authors alike. Proceeds from the COT Collection support:

  • The maintenance and improvement of book and ancillary content
  • Development and maintenance of our proprietary e-reader.
  • The work of COT Education

Long term plans for the Collection include the formation of communities of practice around each title: mutually supporting groups of adopters who contribute new or improved content and ancillaries.

NEW TITLE!—Available Now for Fall 2015
The first title in the COT Collection is Sage American History. This two-part textbook, authored by Henry Judd Sage, is designed to correspond to a two-semester introductory course in American History. This book is now available, and we are seeking adopters for Fall Semester 2015.
