Custom Books and other course materials

XanEdu can help you design the perfect solution to fit your course. You’ll no longer be tied to nationally-published resources that don’t match your objectives. In addition to your own materials, your custom book or lab manual can include reprinted materials from a variety of sources – articles from professional journals, popular magazines, as well as excerpts and illustrations from books or other documents.


XanEdu’s editorial team can help you turn this material into an affordable custom title. Whatever your custom book requirements, we provide editorial and production services to ensure the finished project meets your needs.

Editorial services available:

  • Copyright research, clearance and royalty payment management
  • Content development and research
  • Custom cover design
  • Pagination, typesetting, table of contents, title page, and acknowledgements
  • ISBN assignment
  • Formatting and proofreading all original and reprinted material
  • OCR scanning
  • Printing and binding


Make Your Book an e-Book

75% of students prefer print plus digital course materials. Deliver your custom textbook on the award-winning myXanEdu digital platform. Students can highlight, take notes, collaborate with peers and instructors, and can take their book along with them wherever they go.


Considering Custom? Now is the time to start projects for Fall '24

Custom publishing offers many benefits: tailor materials to your syllabus, pass on, cost savings for students, incorporate unique elements from your campus and more.
As the publishing market continues to change, XanEdu offers faculty members full publishing benefits without any out-of-pocket costs to you. As a full-service publisher, XanEdu differs from self-publishing sites in many ways. Most importantly, we care about you as the author, and you always maintain your copyrights!

We have been in the higher education publishing market since 1999 and we publish great quality books at the lowest prices, all while stocking inventory and marketing across campus bookstores and faculty, social media, and Amazon.
