Welcome to the home of the Pressbooks Open Source project.

Pressbooks is a book content management system that exports in multiple formats: ebooks, webbooks, print-ready PDF, and various XML flavours. The system is built on top of WordPress Multisite, and makes significant changes to the admin interface, web presentation layer and export routines of a vanilla WordPress install.
Pressbooks is used by educational institutions, academic presses, small publishers, as well as individual authors. There are three ways to use it:
- Let us host and maintain a Pressbooks network for you (PressbooksEDU plans include priority setup, tech support and training, and save your IT/development team countless hours)
- Host and maintain your own Pressbooks network (best for institutions with development staff devoted to maintaining your system)
- Use Pressbooks.com (ideal for individuals or as a test bed for institutional use)
On this site we provide resources and links for the open source community. Get involved!
