BCcampus Open Education believes that education must be available to everyone. This means supporting the creation of free, open, and accessible educational resources. We are actively committed to increasing the accessibility and usability of the textbooks we produce.
Accessibility of This Resource
This resource is not accessible to all people. It is an adaptation of an existing resource that was not published by BCcampus. Due to its size and the complexity of the content, we did not have capacity to remediate the content to bring it up to our accessibility standards at the time of publication. This is something we plan to come back to in the future.
In the mean time, we have done our best to be transparent about the existing accessibility barriers and features below:
