The Pressbooks Directory (https://pressbooks.directory/) indexes over 2000 open access books created by educational institutions. As many of these are not indexed separately, it would be great if the contents of the directory could be included in the Alma Community Zone and/or the Central Discovery Index.
We will review this request for addition in our products.
Thank you for your contribution!
Yes, please add PressbooksEDU to the Alma Community Zone as well as the CDI.

I second Lachlan's idea to add the Pressbooks Directory of 2000 plus open access books to the Alma Community Zone (CZ) as well as the Central Discovery Index (CDI).
One example of a new Pressbook textbook, created collaboratively by some of the California Community Colleges is "Introduction to College Research": https://introtocollegeresearch.pressbooks.com/ This textbook could be used for information literacy classes and workshops. The textbook also includes supplementary Canvas modules available for import/download in the Canvas Commons: https://lor.instructure.com/resources/c365c982ba214696ae1b10afe73e6551?shared
