MSU Libraries provides no-cost access to Pressbooks for the MSU community interested in creating or modifying open textbooks. Pressbooks is a web-based publishing tool that allows authors to easily import content and export the resulting publication to a variety of formats, including MOBI, EPUB, and PDF. Additionally, the platform and compatible plugins support embedded multimedia, interactive assessment, and web annotation.
OER projects supported by the MSU Libraries are created and hosted in Pressbooks. We provide Pressbooks training, technical support, accessibility checks, cover design, and intellectual property guidance. Additionally, we'll help migrate content into Pressbooks from other formats for authors interested in modifying existing OER. Contact us at LIB.OER@msu.edu.
