Anyone with a @jmu.edu address (faculty, staff, or affiliate) or @dukes.jmu.edu address (students) can create a Pressbooks account. You can also choose to grant access to your book to another user with an active JMU affiliation.
At this time, only users with @jmu.edu and @dukes.jmu.edu email addresses are able to create accounts and access the system. If you are working on a project with a coauthor at a different institution, you can give authorship credit to your collaborator but only you will be able to access the project in the system. If you need to give a non-JMU collaborator access to the system, email Liz Thompson, email@example.com, to discuss possible options.
Your account will be active for as long as you remain affiliated with JMU. If you leave JMU, you can export and download your book files to transfer to a different platform (read more about moving files).
