Thieme now offers iPad access to institutional users!
In order to download Thieme E-Book Library books to your iPad, you will need to download and install the iPublishCentral Reader App first. This can be done in two ways (via the platform or via the iPad app store):
From the Thieme E-Book Library platform (http://ebooks.thieme.com/bookshelf) access your first title and click on the iPublishCentral Reader link to install the app (see step 2 below)
Browse the AppStore on your iPad (search for "iPublishCentral Reader"). Alternatively you can download the app on a desktop via an iTunes account and sync with the iPad. The app is free; your Apple/iTunes account will not be charged.
On the opening page, you will find the list of titles provided in the library. Browse to a title of interest and click on the Download link
. This will take you to the Download page. As an iPad user you will see a download icon for the iPad. Click the icon and the "open reader" file. Your title will download into your iPad’s Bookshelf within the iPublishCentral Reader App (note: a title can only be downloaded once per session. However, beyond that, you are free to delete and/or reinstall any give title on your ipad)
Open the iPublishCentral Reader and tap on a downloaded title to access the book.
If you tap the top bar, a menu of icons will appear. On the left hand side icons are presented for the back button and table of contents. On the right hand side icons for settings, search, notes and bookmarks are presented.
To delete a title, return to the iPad’s Bookshelf and make a “long tap” (keep your finger on the cover) until a delete icon appears at the corner of the book cover.
You can change the settings to enable single or double page view as default. Double page view will only work in a landscape/horizontally orientated iPad
Notes and bookmarks that are contained in the user’s pc account are not linked or transferred to the iPad app (the iPad app does not allow or require the user to log in)
