Notes

Abstract: While tools like Pressbooks make it easy to produce a print-quality PDF of the interior of a book (that can be printed and bound locally for distribution), you might be interested in having the book professionally printed and bound, with a proper cover, and even made available for purchase. You’ll encounter a range of options for printing—from consumer-oriented self-service operations like Lulu to book printers that work with publishers—and options for distribution, whether available only as print on demand through a printer’s website or available in the book supply chain for campus bookstores to order. This presentation will provide an overview of the landscape and factors to consider in choosing among your options.
