GU Press Joins Multimedia Publishing Platform

GU Press has been accepted into a pilot program for an online publishing platform that will allow us to deliver content with robust multimedia integration. The platform, Manifold, supports scholarly publishing and enables publishers to move beyond the printed page to give readers an interactive and accessible experience.

Manifold will:

  • Feature multimedia resources such as video, data, maps, gifs, and other resources that would not be possible in print format. The primary benefit for GU Press is the ability to embed video in ASL with text or feature it as a stand-alone resource.
  • Foster community discussion and collaboration by providing both authors and readers options to annotate and comment.
  • Track engagement so GUPress can better understand how to connect with their audience.

The platform was developed in part by the University of Minnesota Press and is grant funded. You can read the press release from Manifold here.

GU Press hopes to begin working with Manifold on projects beginning in the fall of 2019.
