Making Your Book

18 Add a Collaborator or Coauthor

You can choose to add a collaborator to your book and customize the role and permissions for each added user. Only users with 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,
1) Create a sponsored account for the external author
2) Have the external author login using that sponsored account
3) Connect the external author’s account (now in Pressbooks) to your book
You can email for assistance in creating a sponsored account.
