this is the voa special english development report.

books are a high cost of higher education. but the global text project hopes to create a free library of one thousand electronic textbooks for students in developing countries.

the global text project aims to fill a web-based library with 1,000 books

the aim is to offer subjects that students may take in their first few years at a university. the books could be printed or read on a computer or copied onto a cd or dvd.

two professors in the united states are leading the global text project.

richard watson is the acting head of the department of management information systems at the university of georgia. and donald mccubbrey is a professor of information technology and electronic commerce at the university of denver, in colorado.

professor watson tells us that the idea for this project goes back several years. he was teaching a computer programming class but did not have a good textbook. so he asked his students to each write part of a book that he would organize and edit.
