Project Background

The inaugural meeting for this project was organized by Cathryn Ryan and held in Guelph, Ontario in 2016. The meeting was attended by John Cherry, Robert Gilham, Beth Parker, William Alley, Douglas Mackay, Robert Cleary and Warren Wood. Cathryn Ryan then worked with the original copyright holder (Pearson Education Inc.) to obtain permission to legally return the copyright to the authors who then gave HWB permission to digitize and translate the textbook.

We are grateful to the authors and Pearson Education Inc. for allowing us to post this excellent textbook on our website.

Financial Support

Cathryn Ryan and David Bethune obtained funding through the University of Calgary from Alberta Open Educational Resources to hire Aimee Lo and Tory Laliberte to digitize the textbook and create the webpages for HWB. Colour versions of the chapter title graphics were kindly provided by Peter Russell who created the original graphics for the book.

GW Solutions provides a monthly donation.
