Book Set Up

12 Parts: Add, Change, Organize

Last update: Feb 21/20


A book written in Pressbooks is made up of chapters which are grouped and ordered into parts. chapters are web pages or building blocks within which content is added. Parts are overarching sections that hold chapters.

Most of the open textbooks published by BCcampus use parts as chapters, and chapters as chapter sections. This is done to:

  • Organize book content
  • Facilitate navigation
  • Avoid long web pages so readers can easily view detailed book structure via the table of contents

For an example, see the organization of the open textbook, Canadian History: Pre-Confederation.

"" For more information, see Parts in the Pressbooks User Guide.
