The creation and use of open textbooks and open books are currently on the rise. However, if your library serves instructors or authors who want to adapt or create open textbooks or open books, they may be wondering what software to use. This session compares free tools for authoring open textbooks and books, including Google Docs, PressBooks, the OER Open Author Tool, the Moodle Book Module, and others. The presentation will be followed by a roundtable discussion of participants’ experiences with supporting the creation of open textbooks and books.
