User Policies and Guidelines
Only users with @umn.edu email addresses are able to create accounts and automatically access the system. If you are working on a project with a coauthor at a different institution, you could give authorship credit to your collaborator while only you are able to access the project in the system.
If you need to give a non-U of MN collaborator access to the system,
- Create a sponsored account for the external author
- Have the external author login to Pressbooks using that sponsored account (this will create an account for them in the system)
- Connect the external author’s account (now in Pressbooks) to your book
Your account will be active for as long as you remain affiliated with the University. If you leave Minnesota, you can export and download your book files to transfer to a different platform (read more about moving files).
