For more information about Pressbooks, see the publisher’s website.

Open educational resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research materials that are either in the public domain, or openly licensed so everyone has free and perpetual permission to engage in the 5R activities: retain, reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute. For more about OER at ISU, visit the University Libraries’ guide to OER.

To get started publishing your own content as an ISU faculty, staff member or student, see instructions on the ISU Pressbooks Getting Started page.
