E books & it's techniques

  1. 1. Presentation on E-Books Presenter Kumod S.
  2. 2. Index: • • • • • • • E-books E- database & it’s types Creation of an E-book XML (eXtensible Markup Language) Parsing DTD(Document Type Definition) Features of an E-book.
  3. 3. E- BOOKS  An e-book is the electronic version of a book covering its full contents (text, tables, diagrams, illustrations, etc.)  An e-book collection is usually set up in an edatabase, which supports full-text searching within and across titles, advanced search and bookmark functions.  Users can view full text of e-books in HTML or PDF format online.
  4. 4. An E- Database • An e-database is an organized collection of information, of a particular subject or multidisciplinary subject areas. The information of an edatabase can be searched and retrieved electronically. • Contents include journal articles, newspaper articles, book reviews and conference proceedings, etc.
  5. 5. Types of e-databases: Full-text vs. Bibliographic • Full-text databases contain the whole content of an article such as citation information, text, illustrations, diagrams and tables. • Bibliographic databases only contain citation information of an article, such as author name, journal title, publication date and page numbers.
  6. 6. Creation of an E-book • There are total three groups first is TPA which is known as Text Proofing Analysis group. • In text proofing analysis we mostly check the text content of the file. Eg: bold, italic, parenthesis, paragraph start n closing.  • In text proofing we also check for special characters like scientific symbols (alpha, beta) & literals.
  7. 7. • First level of agent performs the text proofing & then the Quality checking is performed for the text proofing work. • After text proofing is complete we move towards the next phase (team) of project which is Styling using XML & XSLT. This is done by Styling team. • In styling with the help of some automized tools we apply XSLT to word documents. • Applying XSLT is just by clicking the icons assigned for a particular style.
  8. 8. • The clicking enables to run XML & HTML code in background & applies style sheet to the document. • After applying XSLT we run document through software where XML formation of document is carried out. • Here XML tags are applied to the documents & whole XML code per chapter is generated. • The Coding team checks the code generated for XSLT. The parsing for each chapter is examined here which is known as Non-Validating parsing.
  9. 9. XML: • • • • XML stands for eXtensible Markup Language. XML is designed to transport and store data. XML is important to know, and very easy to learn. It is heterogeneous for any hardware and software support. • It means it can transfer data irrespective of hardware & software used for any computer in the world. • This is the main reason why XML has huge advantage in e-books world.
  10. 10. Parsing: • There are two types of parsing: Validating parsing & Non-validating parsing. • In Non-validating parsing only the tagging of the document is checked based on the text.  • In validating parsing the XML document is validated against a pre-stored XSLT file. Eg: DOM parsing. DOM parsing is Document Object Model for a parsing. This is one of the parsing techniques. • After validating parsing DTD of an e-book is created.
  11. 11. DTD (Document Type Definition) • A DTD defines the document structure with a list of legal elements and attributes. • The purpose of a DTD (Document Type Definition) is to define the legal building blocks of an XML document.  • It shows the way in which a particular document has been defined. • A DTD can be formed for various documents like ebooks, news paper articles etc.
  13. 13. • After DTD formation an e-book creation is almost completed. • Now we can load this e-book on to website where we wish to sale or market the book. • There few online libraries for e-books currently in the world. • Few of them are Google e-book library,, • Many IT firms involved in e-books business are Accenture, E-Clerx, HOV Services, Google.
  14. 14.
