Two Lovely Reviews of PressBooks

We recently got two lovely reviews of PressBooks from a couple of different kinds of users:

Moultie Creek Gazette, a blog which focuses on the writing of local and family histories, and which has written about PressBooks before, has a nice run-down of how PressBooks can be used to make local history and family history books. It’s a nice how-to, explaining the process step-by-step. Summary:

PressBooks is a great platform for building a writing co-op where multiple family history writers build their individual book projects and support each other with review and copyediting support. Once the book is finished and published, your PressBooks project site can become a preview site providing links to your book pages at the booksellers where you book is available.
