18 Add a Collaborator or Co-author

You can choose to add a collaborator to your book and customize the role and permissions for each added user. Collaborator accounts are restricted to users with @jmu.edu and @dukes.jmu.edu email addresses. If you need to give a non-JMU collaborator access to the system, email Liz Thompson, thomp3ea@jmu.edu, to discuss possible options.


  • If your project is collaborative, remember that Pressbooks does NOT allow synchronous co-editing. Only one person at a time can be actively making changes in Pressbooks.
