Digital Publishing Support

Why Digital Publishing

Digital publishing practices leverage digital technologies to make information and art available to the public. Examples of digital publications include open educational resources, podcasts, websites, and more. Through using digital techniques, publishers distribute their works more broadly, accessibly, and freely than traditional print-based methods allow.
