Page-image Format E-Books
• Page-image format e-books to be added to the collection are scanned
off site by the University of Michigan’s MPublishing Division. Cradle
scanning is performed on rare books, we also convert PDFs provided
by the publishers.
• Page-image titles are presented using tiff-to-gif technology, viewable
with standard web browsers online.
• Underlying the page images is the OCR text (99.99% accurate), which
is used for searching.
• In response to user feedback, HEB recently began offering new
viewing options: 1) page image (the default option), 2) OCR text,
which shows highlighted search terms and allows for access by screen
readers for the visually impaired, and 3) PDF, to facilitate printing (3
pages at a time allowed).
ACLS Humanities E-Book
XML Format E-Books
•
Most XML books in the HEB collection are derived from a preexisting print
version. Select other titles in the collection are “born digital” and do not have
a print counterpart.
•
In contrast to page-image books that are image-based, XML books are textbased. The books are encoded in XML, but are dynamically transformed into
HTML for standard web-browser viewing when accessed online.
•
The DTD used for XML conversion is specific to HEB, but based on TEI Lite,
a simplified version of the Text Encoding Initiative guidelines.
•
The XML format allows for features such as image enlargement, internal and
external links, and for the inclusion of additional materials such as interactive
maps, audio and video files, databases and archival materials.
•
Titles are numbered by paragraph for ease of scholarly citation; those books
with print counterparts also include print page numbers for reference.
ACLS Humanities E-Book
