PressBooks is an open-source book publishing platform built on WordPress that makes it easy for you and your team to write, edit, and generate clean, well-formatted books in multiple outputs: epub, print-ready PDF, layout-ready XML, and HTML. Hugh will provide an overview of the PressBooks project and Christine will demo how the University of Washington’s Technology & Social Change group is using the platform to publish academic texts.
