Publish Digital Books and Open Textbooks with Pressbooks
Workshop: Scholarly Communication | April 26 | 11:10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. | Dwinelle Hall, Academic Innovation Studio, Dwinelle 117 (Level D)
If you're looking to self-publish work of any length and want an easy-to-use tool that offers a high degree of customization, allows flexibility with publishing formats (EPUB, MOBI, PDF), and provides web-hosting options, Pressbooks may be great for you. Pressbooks is often the tool of choice for academics creating digital books, open textbooks, and open educational resources, since you can license your materials for reuse however you desire. The Library is launching a new Pressbooks site just for UC Berkeley users so anyone on campus can have access to a wide array of digital publishing tools. Learn why and how to use Pressbooks for publishing your original books or course materials. You'll leave the workshop with a project already under way!
