Exact Editions invites librarians, scholars and readers to beta-test and comment on a new web Reader which will be usable with all Exact Editions subscriber accounts.
We are simultaneously preparing to release a first wave of digital books which will be licensed to libraries, universities, colleges and schools for perpetual access using the Exact Editions platform.
The new Reader allows beta-testers to choose from a variety of different book titles, to read online. Readers can scroll through the pages, or skip to the table of contents and select a chapter to jump to.
The Reader also boasts a sophisticated search system, incorporating a Boolean search function. Readers can search within a particular book, or search their entire collection of digital books.
For the rest of the month there is an opportunity to access and enjoy full access to these books. When the beta-testing is concluded access will be provided to institutions that acquire a license for perpetual access.
