Jisc Collections is running a national pilot programme of projects called ‘The Institution as E-textbook Publisher’. The programme is funding UK higher education institutions for a period of four years to:

  ▪ create their own e-textbooks
  ▪ apply a business, licensing and distribution model and
  ▪ report back on the impact, value and viability of the models they chose

Four project teams were selected to take part from:

  ▪ University of Liverpool
  ▪ University of Nottingham
  ▪ University of the Highlands and Islands with Edinburgh Napier University
  ▪ University College London

These project teams will work closely with one another and lessons learned by participants will be shared as each initiative progresses.

The programme started in April 2014 and has a completion date of September 2018.
