RAIDER Publishing

Publishing affordable digital textbooks by TTU faculty for TTU students.

Program Description

Radier Publishing LogoThis new program aims to publish textbooks written by TTU faculty which will be adopted in TTU classrooms.  Works will be peer-reviewed and sold at low-cost to increase affordability for students across campus. Currently in the pilot stage, we welcome proposals from faculty ready to work with library staff to develop the first round of high-quality, digital textbooks at affordable prices. Textbooks of all disciplines and completion status—from unwritten to unpublished to previously published—are welcome.  The program defines textbooks as works written for classroom adoption, whether traditional textbooks, readers, or lab manuals .
