Hugh McGuire

Literature and publishing

I’ve been building tools and communities to bring books onto the open web since about 2005. I’m the founder of LibriVox.org (free public domain audiobooks, made by volunteers from around the world), Pressbooks (an open source book publishing platform built on WordPress).  I’m also Executive Director of the Rebus Foundation, a non-profit that is building the infrastructure to support books on the open web, by: building a new collaborative model for creating and publishing Open Educational Resources (OER), and building an open platform for scholarly reading. I live and work in Montreal, Canada.
