Use Pressible

Welcome to Pressible! This list of resources is a general guide to using Pressible in a powerful way to publish and share your content. On Pressible, you can create a blog-like site based on our templated system, and begin publishing with very little set-up time. If you’d like further assistance, the library team routinely does hands-on sessions with Pressible administrators, editorial teams, and authors. Submit a Support Request for any issue: http://library.tc.columbia.edu/support
