Welcome to the Minnesota Library Publishing Project
The Minnesota Library Publishing Project (MLPP) is a pilot project that provides online publishing tools and training information to support independent authors and small publishers across the state. We believe that libraries have a role to play in helping local communities come together to create and share books. The MLPP is coordinated by Minitex with support from Minnesota’s academic and public libraries.
MLPP’s book design tool is Pressbooks: an easy-to-use, online, cloud-based service that enables authors and publishers to create attractive content using a wide variety of templates and formatting options. Templates are available that are tailored for poetry, fiction, family history, dissertations, and many other content types. Pressbooks assigns each uploaded manuscript a unique URL that authors can use to share their work. Pressbooks enables authors to export their work in the formats that are essential to publishing, including PDF, EPUB, MOBI, and HTML. Authors also have a variety of options to create print versions of their book(s).
