Lauri and all at BC Campus,

I just took a look at the new Philosophy text. Wow. Your versions and access to editable sources is amazing. Thank you for tour continual improvement and challenges to the status quo. You all are providing tremendous service to OER.

Thank you!!

Subject: [OpenStax Institutional Partner Listserv] BCcampus OpenEd: Jan 9/18 - new books and updates

Hello Everyone,

We've added two new books and one new ancillary resource, as well as, a few updates. Please see below.

Literature Reviews for Education and Nursing Graduate Students<https://open.bccampus.ca/find-open-textbooks/?uuid=8af49997-4d25-43fe-b6fa-8ab09f3ca64f&contributor=&keyword=&subject=>
This new textbook, published by the Rebus Community, is designed for students in graduate-level nursing and education programs. Its intent is to recognize the significant role the literature review plays in the research process and to prepare students for the work that goes into writing one.
