This panel presentation shares innovative ways to engage patrons from a variety of library types and patrons including students, faculty, and teachers. In one case study, Winona State University has collaboratively published three books written by graduate students in Leadership Education. WSU used a variety of technologies, one of which is Pressbooks. Fortunately WSU has supported and has access to the subscription level Pressbooks  through the statewide subscription available by Minnesota Libraries Publishing Project (MLPP) initiative. In addition to Pressbooks, Canva, Ingramspark, Adobe Creative Cloud, and bepress Digital Commons are all used in our process to create and publish print and ebooks written and edited by our graduate students. This process can be replicated in a variety of ways with alternative platforms.  In the second half of this session, attendees will have the opportunity to use Pressbooks to create an ebook.  Attendees will create their own Pressbooks account, learn about basic Pressbook features, and create their own ebook. Please note, this session is limited to 30 people.
