Who we are

We are a small team working together to build and share software that supports new models for book publishing with an emphasis on supporting open educational resources (aka free digital textbooks). We are passionate about open source, open content, open knowledge, and the intersection of books and the web.

What we do

Pressbooks is simple book production software, built with the web in mind. Create interactive web books, PDFs for print, and ebooks, all from one place. Write your own book on Pressbooks or import an existing manuscript, then choose a book design theme, and export into all the file formats you need to publish your books.

Pressbooks is widely used in universities to support OER and open textbook initiatives. Pressbooks lets you create interactive webbooks for open textbooks, OER, syllabi, modules, monographs, and other long-form structured content.

We’re a self-sustaining open source / SaaS business, with a growing list of happy clients in Canada, the United States, and beyond. Most of our clients are universities and other educational institutions that use Pressbooks to power their publishing and open/free digital textbook creation programs. We are trusted partners to higher ed institutions, helping them deliver strong Open Education programs.
