In one case study, Winona State University has collaboratively published three books written by graduate students in Leadership Education.

Fortunately WSU has supported and has access to the subscription level Pressbooks through the statewide subscription available by Minnesota Libraries Publishing Project (MLPP) initiative. In addition to Pressbooks, Canva, Ingramspark, Adobe Creative Cloud, and bepress Digital Commons are all used in our process to create and publish print and ebooks written and edited by our graduate students.
