It’s still considered the definitive book on North Dakota’s history.
And it will soon be available as an “open educational resource.”
The University of North Dakota will soon begin digitizing Elwyn Robinson’s “History of North Dakota.” The book was written in the 1960s, and has been updated since then.
"This is the seminal work on the history of North Dakota," said UND Dean of Libraries and Information Resources Stephanie Walker. "It's still well-used. and it is still available as a textbook -- for money."
Walker says the plan is to make it open-source.
