Pressbooks webbooks are website versions of your book that are hosted on Pressbooks and can be distributed for free to the public. Many use Pressbooks webbooks to produce and distribute open educational resources (OER) such as Open Textbooks Unlike PDFs and eBooks, webbooks are a live version of your book that don’t need to be exported or downloaded.
Pressbooks produces a web version of every book. You can view yours at any time by clicking the Visit Book link underneath the title of your book in the top menu. However, your Pressbooks webbook is Private until you change the Global Privacy Setting to Public.
For more information on how to control the privacy of your webbook, visit the Privacy Settings chapter.
Note: On Pressbooks.com, the Global Privacy Setting only becomes available after upgrading your book to one of the Pro Plans. Authors who are not interested in creating open resources sometimes utilise the Pressbooks catalogue feature to give readers access to samples of their books.
