Chapters are the highest level of organization in Boundless content. For example, a chapter in our U.S. History book is "Founding a Nation." A single chapter will be denoted by a number; for example, the "Founding a Nation" chapter in U.S. History is Chapter 7.
Each chapter is comprised of several sections. For example, a section in the Founding a Nation chapter is "A New Constitution,” numbered Section 7.2.
Within each section is a number of concepts. A concept is the smallest, most basic level of our content and consists of full text, a one-line "brief," key points, and key terms. All of our actual text content resides on concept pages; chapters and sections do not contain any content outside of concepts.
An example of a concept from the "A New Constitution" section is "The Branches of Government," Concept 7.2.3.
The Book Editor
The Boundless book editor allows an educator to customize their own copy of a Boundless book to suit the structure of their specific syllabus or course. Through a simple drag-and-drop interface, the book editor makes it easy to edit a table of contents—to reorder the content, to pull in new material from across our 23 introductory-college subjects, and even to add your own content.
