The UW Libraries is currently piloting several digital book publishing platforms for the next three years. These platforms include Manifold, Pressbooks, and Scalar. Please see the Manifold and Pressbooks guides for more information on these platforms. Have questions on which one is best for your project? Email email@example.com to talk through your project and receive guidance from our staff.
Scalar is a free, open source authoring and publishing platform that’s designed to make it easy for authors to write long-form, born-digital scholarship online. Scalar enables users to assemble media from multiple sources and juxtapose them with their own writing. Starting in 2020, the UW Libraries is taking part in a 3 year pilot hosting Scalar sites through Reclaim Hosting.
