I am greatly interested in learning about _non-U.S._ Digital Textbook initiatives for inclusion in my Digital Textbook blog [ http://digital-textbooks.blogspot.com/ ] and / or working bibliography.

To date I've identified only several projects outside of the United States, that include:

_Digital School Program with Open Textbooks Approved by Polish Government!_

_In South Korean Classrooms, Digital Textbook Revolution Meets Some Resistance_

[ http://digital-textbooks.blogspot.com/2012/03/in-south-koreanclassrooms-digital.html ]

_E-books Venture to Target UK Students_

[ http://digital-textbooks.blogspot.com/2012/04/e-books-venture-to-target-uk-students.html ] 

I am interested in any / all non-U.S. Digital Textbook projects at the institutional, local, state, regional, and/or national level(s).

BTW-1: I will be giving two (2) lectures and a workshop for the DILL (Digital Library Learning) program in Parma, Italy ( http://dill.hioa.no/ ) during the week of September 17 2012. 

BTW-2: I am more than willing to give presentations / workshops in other European venues after September 19 but no later than September 28 2012, if there is adequate interest and support.

Please contact me ( gerrymck at iastate.edu ) if you and/or your institutional have an interest
