Simple User Experience
The Ebook Central platform provides a straightforward interface for anyone searching for an ebook, no matter their background or training.
Users can connect to the exact content they need at a chapter and sub-chapter level, and can expand contents pages to quickly find the right chapter. Searching is made easier by the wealth of information provided on the book detail page, including availability, descriptive and bibliographic information.
Once a user has identified the information they need, Ebook Central allows them to read it online or download a DRM-free file to read on the go.
