As a LibreNet member, there are two private forums dedicated to effective communication between your campus and the LibreTexts development and support team.

Using these forums is straightforward and can operate via email or via the online forum website (links below).

One forum is dedicated to executive communication

This is where you can ask specifics about the features you have access to and other aspects that are not of importance to your other faculty working OER projects (e.g., access to the H5P server).

The second forum is dedicated to communication between OER projects on your campus and the LibreTexts. This includes your executive members too so that you know of the communication topics and responses on your side. And can review it at later dates.

You will have access to an experimental forum dedicated to Graphics Design. We have a volunteer amateur graphics designer that is revamping and building images for the LibreText platform. Invite yourself to the group and submit a message via
