Abstract

The electronic book and library are a two unit system that provide convenient access to large volumes of documentation through the use of a light weight, easily readable viewer unit, which communicates with the LAN connected library unit by wireless connection. Separating the viewing unit from data storage provides the following advantages: the viewer is lighter and more robust than a laptop, has a larger display area than a PDA, and does not require expensive form factor data storage. The viewer unit also includes enhanced usability software.
