While uptake on eBooks has been phenomenally fast around the world, many users still long to see book content displayed in a traditional book format. Readers like the sense of “place” they experience on the printed page, the comfort of a familiar layout, and the reading breaks afforded by page turns.The book-like online reading experience is prevalent across popular reading platforms, and user expectations have now translated to research eBooks such as Gale Virtual Reference Library as well.
The latest update for GVRL is introduced specifically to exceed those expectations. Book content displays in PDF format — exactly as it would in a print copy of the book — yet readers retain the search ability and important tools typically only available within the less-visual HTML format, like the ability to create citations, download articles, and email content.
To read a GVRL title in this format just click the Browse Book link under the cover of the book.
