Building a Better Book in a Browser

MSU Library Book in Browser project is a digital initiative to enhance and improve prototype software for publishing books within in a web browser, which will make online books more accessible, discoverable, shareable, and ready for analysis by users. The project will establish best practices for web publishing in specific genres, such as textbooks, fiction, and articles, and share these best practices through outreach and publications. The resulting software is open source and available under the MIT license from our MSU Library GitHub account, creating a model intended for broader use in the library and publishing communities and contributing to a wider area of research related to open publishing models for e-books.
