webBooks

The webBook format is available along with the ePub and Print On Demand formats of our books.

The webBook is an online option that allows students to access AMS digital books on all devices without downloading the ePub ebooks or an ePub reader to their devices. Instead, they only need to log into the AMS Bookstore to access their books. The webBook will have all of the features of the ePub, including bookmarking, links and annotating and also feature:

  • Sharing notes across devices
  • Creating flip cards for review
  • Creating a study guide
  • Collaborating stuides with peers
  • Accessing manual and textbook in different tabs simultaneously
  • Accessing books from any web capable device 

Any faculty who license will receive a free copy of both webBook and ePub.
