Thanks to John Emerson for drawing our attention to this development – as the statement says:
BiblioBoard will host the innovative new textbook being created jointly by Liverpool University Press, the University of Liverpool Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and the University Library. This project, funded by Jisc, seeks to address the question: can a university working as an e-textbook creator and publisher better serve students and promote a more sustainable information environment in higher education?
The e-textbook Using Primary Sources: A Guide for Students is expected to launch on BiblioBoard in September 2015. The book will be produced under the General Editorship of Jonathan Hogg and used across the university’s School of History.
Very interesting question and fascinating development.
