Our graduate reference specialists learned more about Pressbooks and open educational resources (OER) during today’s online Pressbooks Workshop, taught by Lauren Ray and moderated by Liz Bedford. Pressbooks is an easy-to-use e-book authoring platform that allows users to create interactive online books that can be distributed as e-books, PDF, and other formats.
UW Libraries currently provides free access to Pressbooks for current students, faculty, and staff. Interested in using Pressbooks for your next writing project? Contact Lauren Ray at email@example.com to request access to Pressbooks and to learn about future workshops.
Additionally, learn more about what UW Tacoma is doing to support OER and open access publishing through our recent blog post!
