ABSTRACT
It was in 2012, at the annual Open Education conference that we announced the creation of the B.C. Open Textbook Collection. Five years later, we have just returned from this year’s Open Education conference in Anaheim, California, and are celebrating the 5th anniversary of the Collection – let’s take a moment to reflect on how far we’ve come over the years.
