Text Chunks

The text of each book is broken down and delivered in chunks by chapter, section, or paragraph range, according to the publisher's request. Delivering only portions of each book at a time to users enables us to track hits for usage and royalty purposes.

For future books developed with multiple formats from the outset or born digital, text can be structured with shorter, more modular units which are better suited for on-line use.

These paragraph numbers will take the place of page numbers in born-digital books and can be used for scholarly citation. [view]
