Do you have a monograph or textbook that you want to publish online? Have a blog that you want to turn into a book? Learn how to publish an online book using Pressbooks (http://www.pressbooks.com), a web-based online publishing software tool. Participants will learn how to organize and arrange their book, upload different types of content, and generate different file types. This WordPress-based software is great for people who don’t have much experience with digital publishing, but all levels of experience are welcome!

Developing better research skills is just a tweet away. Learn to find sources, manage information, and share your research with the world: https://twitter.com/IllinoisLibrary
