An IMLS Funded Project From Collaborative Knowledge Foundation and Open Textbook Network Will Allow More Faculty To Create Their Own Open Textbooks
From the Collaborative Knowledge Foundation:
More faculty will be able to create their own open textbooks thanks to a National Leadership Grant for Libraries from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to support a collaborative project led by the Open Textbook Network (OTN), in partnership with Coko.
“A National Platform for Authoring Open Textbooks” seeks to lower barriers to textbook publishing by offering a modern publishing solution that is freely available to all. The IMLS grant (LG-36-19-0035-19) will support this project in developing processes and tools to equip a broad community of authors to write and publish open textbooks.
The project will be informed by the OTN community and built on Coko’s Editoria software.
