This question belongs on our site for academics and those enrolled in higher education.

Flat World Knowledge has some interesting books and they're 100% free online. See for example: flatworldknowledge.com/pub/unfinished-book/412914#pdf-7 as a Principles of Macroeconomics textbook. Any others? –  PGR Jan 30 '12 at 11:44
Wouldn't "open-source" here mean that the text from which, e.g., pdf, was generated, e.g., the doc file or the latex file? I think the appropriate term is "free" or "free-of-charge". –  phaedrus Feb 4 '12 at 4:44
Flat World Knowledge allows one to mix and match. Hence it's an open-source-ish kind of text. –  PGR Feb 5 '12 at 16:45
Are you interested in open source or just in "free as in beer"? Perhaps the title should be changed to "freely available" rather than open source. –  Seamus Feb 14 '12 at 14:54
