What's an ebook?
An eBook is an electronic version of a traditional print book that can be read by using a personal computer or by using an eBook reader. Users can purchase an eBook on diskette or CD, but the most popular method of getting an eBook is to purchase a downloadable file of the eBook from a Web site to be read from the user's computer or reading device. Generally, an eBook can be downloaded in five minutes or less. Although it is not necessary to use a reader application or device in order to read an Ebook (most books can be read as PDF files), they are popular because they enable options similar to those of a paper book - readers can bookmark pages, make notes, highlight passages, and save selected text. In addition to these familiar possibilities, eBook readers also include built-in dictionaries, and alterable font sizes and styles. Follett eBooks can be used in two ways: You can access them online from anywhere and make use of the built-in dictionary and integrated search tools. Or, you can download and view eBooks offline, which reserves the eBook for a set circulation period, and allows use of the search, highlighting, note-taking and copy/paste/print features as permitted by the publisher.
