Wikibooks Help About Wikibooks
Welcome to Wikibooks, a Wikimedia project that was started on July 10, 2003 with the mission to create a free collection of open-content textbooks that anyone can edit. Since our founding, volunteers have written about 52,914 modules in a multitude of textbooks.

The central place to ask questions or discuss ideas is the Reading Room (this is the equivalent to Wikipedia's Village Pump; Wikipedians may wish to read our primer before getting started). See also the mailing list.

If you're an instructor planning on using Wikibooks for a class project, please read our guidelines for class projects.

Explore, be bold in editing pages, play around in the sandbox, have fun, and good luck!
