The Pressbooks Directory was added as a feature on December 2, 2020 and includes open textbooks from BCcampus’s two Pressbooks instances (British Columbia/Yukon Open Authoring Platform and BCcampus Open Publishing).

"" See How to Use the Pressbooks Directory in the The Pressbooks Network Manager’s Guide.

Criteria for Directory Inclusion

  • marked as Public
  • contains 1,500 words or more
  • does not include the word ‘Test’ or ‘Demo’ in the book’s title

Networking

The Pressbooks Open Source project, creator of the Pressbooks Directory, understands that incomplete books are included in the directory providing they meet the criteria for inclusion. In fact, incorporating in-progress books in the directory was an intentional choice in hopes that authors and educators would network with each other about subjects that interested them.
