Infogrid Pacific Library Help

If you can access a collection and books in that collection you have permission to read those books.

In this help file Click and Tap are used interchangeably.


The Infogrid Pacific Libary is an online reading system. You must be connected to the Internet to access the content. This is a demonstration of the concept of a Static Site Library that is published directly from IGP:Digital Publisher just like any other print or ebook formats.


  1. All Library books are designed to be read only on modern browsers. That means recent versions of Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari or Microsoft Edge on any platform or mobile device. If you are using Microsoft IE 11 or earlier behaviour may be unexpected or fail.
  2. There are no reading limitations on the Infogrid Pacific demonstration library. You can access books as often as you like from browsers on any number of platforms or devices.

Using the Category Books Page

When you go to one of the Category pages you will see the list view for books.

You can change the view from cover thumb to list. by clicking on the button in the toolbar. The system is designed to let you get reading any books as fast as possible at the section in which you are interested.

List View

  1. By default the Catagory pages open in List View. This allows you to see the metadata about each book.
  2. If you click on the Contents button under the cover you can immediately see the book Table of Contents (TOC) as a pop-up frame.
  3. You can click on any Content Item and that book section will open in a new window,. 
  4. Click on the X in the top right corner to close the TOC and return to the book List.
  5. Click on the book Cover or the Book Title to open the book in a new window. The book will open at the first chapter.

Thumb View

  1. Click on the Thumb toolbar item. The book presentation will change to Cover View.
  2. If you click on More Info(rmation) the interface will change and show the metadata and full book Table of Contents (TOC).
  3. You can click on any TOC item to open the book in a new window at that section. You can open as many book section views as you need.
  4. To open the book at the standard opening (Start Reading) page, click on the Cover.
  5. To return to the All Books view, click the Back button above the cover.

Navigating Through a Book

When you have opened a book you can quickly and easily move through the contents whether you are detail reading or skimming and scanning.

  1. There are two section navigation buttons. Next and Previous. Click on these to move to the next section in the published sequence.
  2. Content Navigation. You can also click on the Menu option in the top right corner. Click on the C option. This will open the Table of Contents.
  3. From the Table of Contents click on any Chapter Title to navigate directly to that chapter.
  4. You can also right click on the Table of Contents Chapter Titles and open a chapter in a new tab or new window.
  5. Page Number Navigation. If the digital book was produced from a hard copy and the page number positions were included in the digital content you can use Page Navigation. This can be seen in the Guy de Maupassant examples.
  6. Open the Menu and click the Page view icon. This will open the page number navigation and you will see the page numbers that are included in the current section.
  7. Click on any page number. The page will scroll directly to that page. You can see the page numbers in the left margin.
  8. Many of the reflowable demonstration books have page numbers included.

Section Side Navigation

  1. The reader interface provides two additional ways to navigate through section content once a chapter is open and you are reading or browsing:
  2. Page Numbers. If page numbers are present in the left margin click on a page number and that line will scroll to the top of the viewport.
  3. If a page number is at the very top of the viewport, click on it to scroll the next page number to the top of the viewport. This allows you to rapidly browse through a section by page numbers.
  4. Viewport Height Navigation. In the bottom left corner you will find the Viewport navigation buttons. There is an Up button that scrolls the section upwards to the top, and a Down button that scrolls the section downward into the Chapter.
  5. These scroll the page by the height of the viewport less one line to assist linear reading. That is the last line will become the first line at the top of the page after tapping the Up or Down buttons. We call this scrolling pagination. This works for all viewport sizes.
  6. Both Page Number and Scrolling Pagination are positioned to allow one handed reading on mobile devices.

Adjusting your Reading Preferences

  1. If you are on a mobile device the text will expand to fill the viewport. You can orientate your device to landscape or portrait depending on the content and your reading preference.
  2. If you are reading on a desktop browser the window has a maximum text presentation width of 800 pixels to create a comfortable page reading width.
  3. You can also adjust the size of your reading window to any size or orientation and the content will reflow to best fill the window.
  4. If you have multiple reading windows open you can adjust them all independently.
  5. You can change the size of the text from the Toolbar in the top left. Click on the Menu option. Use the A+ and A- buttons to adjust the font size for your device, content and reading preferences. (For the technically interested, this adjusts the size of the font in +/-0.2em steps)


  1. You can search all books using the Search button. All the content of the books is full text indexed so you can use boolean search techniques. You can:
    1. Do full text index search across multiple books
    2. Search in any language
    3. Boolean search tools include AND, OR, NOT, Phrase, NEAR and *Wildcard
  2. When you have your search results you can filter these further by the keywords you will see in the search results. Just click on a keyword.
