An eBook is an electronic version of a published book but with additional features:

  • a convenient table of contents (in a tree-like structure) that is linked to the contents
  • the ability to search for words or phrases
  • the ability to print
  • the ability to copy text, an image, formulas - anything contained in the eBook
  • Hyperlinks (link to note, file, web, email...)
  • Color styles

eBooks do not age with time in the way that a printed document does. Like the words contained in them, eBooks never grow old. You may write eBooks from your hard drive to a CD or CDR for portability. Also, eBooks are contained in an executable file (an EXE file). By simply clicking an icon or double clicking the file, the eBook is ready for reading.

There are other programs that will allow you to create eBooks. The majority of them offer one table of contents and the text. TreeDBNotes Pro eBooks allow you to create multiple tables of contents (one on each tab). You could publish one book in several languages or even multiple books in one file.


Possible Applications

eBooks are very convenient for a variety of purposes. You could prepare documents in eBook format and make them available on the network for your employees. An eBook could be a review of internet sites, programming documentation, or training manuals. An eBook could even literally be a book – a novel, biography, self-help, etc. You could make a collection of useful articles, information, jokes, histories, letters, advice, recipes – anything may be made into an eBook.
