Welcome to OpenOKState’s Pressbooks Guide. This support resource was written for open textbook authors who want to use this writing platform to create a new book, or instructors interested in customizing an existing open textbook.
This is an ongoing resource to which information will be updated as needed. Each chapter includes a “Last update” posted near the bottom of the page.
Open educational resources (OER) are defined as teaching, learning, and research resources that, through permissions granted by the copyright holder, allow others to use, distribute, keep, or make changes to them. We consider this publication—along with our guides, slide decks, and other support materials—as a type of OER that help faculty, staff, and students discover how to build, customize, and use open textbooks.
