Find Out Exactly What proLibro has to Offer your Users:
In 2014, the Canadian Tax Foundation approached CogniLore with a desire to deliver their collection of tax related titles to mobile and PC platforms using CogniLore’s Professional eBook system. Having evaluated other digital delivery systems, ProeBook was selected as the best fit for these titles given the strong match between the Professional eBook system features and specific requirements for the CTF project including:
CTF users would have a requirement to access content within the collection in an ad hoc fashion, as opposed to reading the content linearly. Professional eBooks rapid navigation and high performance search were seen as ideal for allowing clients to quickly locate the desired information within the titles.
CTF members frequently find themselves at client sites and in other locations where an internet signal is not easily available, therefore online/offline access to the content was seen as key.
A turnkey ability to deliver their titles to every platform using fully branded native Apps, without incurring theApp development overhead, and knowing that these Apps would be maintained and improved upon in the future was key, as was the ability to deliver commercial CTF content to these Apps without the need to pay App marketplace royalties.
The ability for members to annotate the collection, and have their annotations replicate to their other devices.
The ability to securely deliver CTF content, and have members access this content using their existing usernames and passwords via the Professional eBook Connect Authentication API.
After having performed a detailed content analysis which included discussion related to how the membership worked with the existing content, additional product features were identified that would be included as title based features. These additional title features include:
The ability to support a hybrid print / digital user environment. Recognizing that a part of their membership would continue to use the print version of the titles, and others would migrate to the digital version, steps were taken to ensure that print artifacts, such as page numbers, were maintained in digital version. CogniLore achieved this goal by using final stage print layouts in Adobe InDesign as the source format, creating export scripts that maintained the relationship between the page numbers and the text found on those particular pages. With the digital product, each page reference also includes the ability to jump to a specific page, making it easy for digital users to follow print citations.
Popup presentation UI for footnotes and endnotes – leveraging the flexibility of the digital format, CogniLore was able to replace footnotes and endnotes with popup containing the referenced text. These elements remained completely searchable, with the ability to trigger the popup to view the contents when they contained search results, but were better positioned contextually to the locate the with which they were associated.
CogniLore extended the reach of the CTF eBooks titles by including linking case and legislative references to both commercial and free 3rd party websites, the contents of which load into the Professional eBook Media Panel, allowing users to draw upon free and subscription content from the web without ever having to leave the native Apps.
