The University of the Highlands and Islands covers a very large area, with 14 widely scattered main campuses and many local learning centres. The University makes use of high technology to link with students and staff for learning, teaching and research. In this context, an investigation of the role of the University as the creator and publisher of e-textbooks and networked resources is a natural imperative. As part of a Jisc-funded project, two e-textbooks are currently being produced, their use evaluated and the whole development process documented for use by other higher education institutions. The books have a complementary open access website. The context of this project is described and the initial results presented.
