  1. How can I search within the E-Book Library?
  2. There are two ways in which to search within the Thieme E-Book Library:

     

    1)  Find the search bar located in the page header. This function is available at all times and can be used to search throughout the entire E-Book Library. Results can then easily be filtered by book or author. You can search using AND, OR and NOT in the search bar.
    (NOTE: Phrase match means that search terms will be case-sensitive and that multiple search terms will be treated as having been submitted between "quotation marks").

    2)  Find the search bar located in the page viewer to search within a chosen book and generate a result list on the left hand side of the page viewer. You can hide or reveal your search results by clicking the small triangle toggle on the right side of the search results.

  3. How can I copy parts of a text?
  4. Open a book by selecting “Read It.” Find the page you want to copy text from, and select the "Text Selection" symbol located next to the "Pen" symbol. Point to the first word of the selection you wish to copy and highlight the text.

  5. How do I stop the “Text Selection” mode?
  6. Re-select the “Text Selection” symbol located in the header.

  7. Why can I only view part of a selected book instead of the full content?
  8. You are not being recognized as an authorized Thieme E-Book Library user.

    Please verify that your institution has access authenticated by an IP address range. If you are accessing this site through a library, please contact your librarian about the access rights of your library. If you are still unable to view the full content, please contact us at e-products@thieme.com.

  9. What is in the Medialibrary?
  10. In the Medialibrary, individual chapters from all books are available as PDFs for easy printing and perusal. In order to access the Medialibrary (in the sidebar on the left of a given title), pls login first
  11. Does the sidebar with the TOC, Notes, Bookmarks and Medialibrary always have to be present (left hand side)?
  12. No. The TOC has a small triangle toggle located in the sidebar that separates the TOC area from the content itself. Clicking this toggle will either hide or display the TOC.

  13. What happens to my notes and bookmarks when an old edition of a title is being replaced by the a new one?
  14. besides in the book itself, you can also find all your notes and bookmarks in 'My Folder". Those will be saved even after a new edition of a title has replaced an older one.
  15. What is the iOffline Reader and how can I start using it?
  16. The iOffline reader is a small program that, after a one time installation onto your laptop, allows you to locally download  and store any licensed title from the Thieme E-Book Library, enabling offline access. The iOffline Reader is built on Adobe Air, which will also be installed during the initial installation process.


    In order to start using iOffline, select the "Download iOffline"-button in the Read Offline box located top left of the E-Booklibrary opening screen, and follow the instructions

     

    Once you have installed the iOffline content reader, a window containing “My bookshelf” will automatically open. You can then select the e-book you wish to download from the list of your licensed e-books.


  17. I have a Macintosh computer, and I just installed iOffline. Where is the App?
  18. your iOffline App by default resides in, and can be started from, the personal applications folder accessible through Finder. (Finder -> Applications -> iOffline)
  19. Thieme just published a new edition of a title I had downloaded. What happens to the old iOffline file I downloaded?
  20. Simply download the new edition. You can keep the old edition next to the new one if you so desire.

  21. Can I link to a specific page in book?
  22. Yes, it is possible for a user to bookmark in their browser, or link to, an individual book page in an E-Book Library title.

    In order to do so, add the document page number (the second number in the page number section of the page viewer’s toolbar) to the book url.

    So, if the book url is http://ebooks.thieme.com/reader/pocket-guide-to-ear, you will have created a stable page link by adding doumnet number '41' as follows:  http://ebooks.thieme.com/reader/pocket-guide-to-ear/41 .

    (Note: PDF only)

  23. Where can I purchase Thieme books?
  24.  

    Please visit www.thieme.com to purchase the print version of any Thieme e-book, and to view a full selection of other great Thieme products. For purchase of e-books, go to http://ebookstore.thieme.com 

     

  25. Why am I seeing three different page numbers when I am in the book view mode?
  26. The number in the white box shows the book page number as it appears in the book (this is also what will come up in a search result).

    The numbers between the brackets respectively display the page number starting from the cover (in other words, the way in which pages are counted in a PDF), and then the total number of pages.

  27. How and on which devices can I access the content?
  28. Your content can be accessed through your licensing institution's network either directly online, or downloaded on all standard desktop, laptop or mobile devices (Windows, OS X, iOs and Android). You do NOT have to create an account. 

    You'll only need to create an account if you wish to keep Notes and Nookmarks.

     

  29. How do I add bookmarks or notes?
  30. Bookmarks: select the bookmark page symbol located in the header of the interface beside the page selection field.

    Notes: Find the page where you would like to add a note and either right click your mouse or select the pen symbol in header of the interface located next to the bookmark icon.
