DjVu Viewer: Some NetLibrary eBooks Want It

While most NetLibrary ebooks will display their full text nicely in Adobe Acrobat Reader, a few want something called the “DjVu Viewer”. A rival product of Acrobat? Anyway, in Internet Explorer and Firefox, trying to view the full text of the book (search “Schaum’s outline of theory and problems of business statistics” in the OPAC for an example) leads to a request to download a “nlreader” file. Don’t bother. The reader hasn’t been setup by Systems yet. And they are still reviewing the viewer to see if it is a solid piece of software we want to maintain, or something from the cyber-fringe that will be more trouble than it’s worth. So, if you run into one of these ebooks and REALLY feel we need to load that viewer ASAP, email lib-ejhelp@interchange.ubc.ca and we’ll try to speed up the roll out.
