As open access and open educational resources grow, it is important to understand your rights and how to use Creative Commons licenses to designate the global use of your creative resources. 

Join us for a copyright, fair use, and public domain refresher and gain understanding of how you can apply Creative Commons Licenses to your works. See our guide  ( for more Information.

You've adopted an Open Access textbook or think it’s time to create a textbook of your own.  Fantastic!! The UWF Libraries can now support your Open Access textbook adaptation and/or creation with our subscription to Pressbooks, a web-based authoring tool.  You may be familiar with their 2000+ catalog of textbooks and monographs, and if not, this is your opportunity to find out you can utilize this resource to create your own textbook.

Take the time to learn more about this tool and how you can take advantage of this opportunity and check out our Pressbooks Guide
