New Service

Texas Tech University Libraries invite faculty to submit textbook proposals to our new publishing program, RAIDER Publishing.


​RAIDER Publishing currently seeks authors interested in participating in the pilot stage of our new program.  Interested authors will write their textbook and then work with RAIDER Publishing staff to determine the best workflow, format, and distribution platform for their work. We will discuss with participants the qualities of an ideal textbook as well as the minimum requirements and will work to develop something that can best benefit the class and maximize efficiency while taking advantage of the digital format.  Since disciplines’ needs vary, we hope to have a wide variety of disciplines represented in our pilot authors, so that we will ultimately maximize usability across campus. 

Deadline: May 15, 2018
