  • Minnesota Libraries Publishing Project (Pressbooks Public Self-Publishing Platform)
    The Minnesota Library Publishing Project (MLPP) provides online publishing tools and training information to support independent authors and small publishers. The MLPP is a pilot project coordinated by Minitex and Minnesota’s academic and public libraries. Hamline University participates in underwriting the cost to participate in MLPP Pressbooks to encourage conversation among libraries and writers and promote experimentation with open- and self- publishing. MLPP’s book design tool is Pressbooks: an easy-to-use online service that enables authors and publishers to create attractive content using a wide variety of templates and formatting options. Pressbooks allows ebooks to be kept private, shared with other authors or editors, or made publicly available. Templates are available that are specifically tailored for poetry, fiction, family history, dissertations, and many other content types.
