ebrary announced that it has launched a new version of the ebrary Reader, its free software application that turns static PDF files into research-ready documents that can be cross-referenced and searched online. The ebrary Reader features more functionality to make the research experience richer and more productive including customizable bibliographical citation formats and refined InfoTools search. The new Reader also now supports both Firefox and Mozilla Web browsers in addition to Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape Communicator. The ebrary Reader is a key component of the ebrary Dynamic Content Platform (DCP) which combines technology with a growing repository of more than 60,000 full-text books and other authoritative documents from more than 200 leading academic, STM, and professional publishers. The ebrary Reader enables PDF documents to be delivered to a user’s desktop one page at a time, eliminating the need for document downloads. It also gives PDF documents word level interaction through InfoTools. Simply by selecting a word or phrase then activating the InfoTools menu, a user can instantly link out to additional resources in ebrary’s repository, the library, or on the Web. http://www.ebrary.com
