    Hello,

    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

    Thank you,

    Ryan

    I've submitted a new idea - we'd like to have LibreTexts ebooks and course content also added to the Alma CZ:

    We would like to add LibreTexts vast collection of open educational resources (OER), including ebooks and course materials bibliographic records added to the Alma CZ: https://libretexts.org/ Then, libraries could add LibreTexts ebooks and course materials to course reserve lists in Alma and Primo.

    LibreTexts is home to the largest collection of open educational resources online. Adding LibreTexts ebooks and course materials to the Alma CZ would ensure users have access to OER from across a wide variety of disciplines.

    Thanks,

    It would also be useful, if the the LibreTexts ebooks could be added to the CZ as bib records, so not just the site could be indexed, but all the site's content could be harvested.

    Thanks,
