I wonder if you know about the AMS *Open Math Notes* project? I only just heard of it, but I feel very positive about any projects that make mathematical content more freely available. Here is the link to the AMS page about the project:

As my students know, I’ve made a habit over the years of putting together TeXed notes for the courses I deliver – especially graduate courses – and now I have quite a number of them. With some pressure on my time (read: cancer) there is no way that I could bring all of these to formal publication, even if that was the right route for them. But as “MathNotes” I can see that they might be helpful. So I’m going to start submitting them, perhaps after light revision, to the AMS site. I made a start today by posting my notes from the Penn State complex analysis (graduate) course, which I’ve delivered three or four times, taking a slightly different tack each time. Based on what I learn from that, I have a good queue of other notes to submit as well. This is actually quite exciting for me.

*Updated, December 20th*: The notes have now appeared on the OpenMathNotes site, and may be found here.

In further exciting (to me) AMS news, my *Winding Around* made it to their 2016 bestseller list! Because of this, the AMS is offering a special discount for orders placed between now and the end of January…

I hope to upload further packages of notes in the new year! Best wishes to all!
