PressBooks: Design and/or publish your open textbook

PressBooks is an online textbook, hosting and design tool. We at the library value OER and publishing, so are eager to help promote this eLearning-supported tool.

Sponsored by Washington State Library, SBCTC is providing a 1-year subscription for all WA community and technical colleges. (The subscription term began 11/21/2022 and will end 11/21/2023.)

The eLearning team has set up a PressBooks site and will provide support for faculty who wish to build their own textbook or ancillary materials.
