People buy your publications to deepen their knowledge in your area of specialty. Give them access to even deeper levels of knowledge by converting your content into L-Books.

Whether your publications contain lots of technical terms, cross references or complex concepts, you should aim to satisfy your readers’ natural curiosity within your product itself. If they start looking up words on the internet or referring to other sources, they are no longer engaging with your product and you risk compromising their loyalty to your brand.

When you convert your content into an L-Book, you keep your readers on the page, offering them in-context information right where they need it – and expect it. Since the reader’s interaction with the information is user-driven, they only access your reference content when they want to, so it’s never in the way and the integrity of the reading experience is upheld.

Example of reference content: the pop-up opens when a word is selected and can include a text and a small image.

Which type of L-Book is best for you?

We recommend L-Book Lite if your main aim is to offer your readers curated in-context information, without the option of creating personalized learning materials out of them. All you need to do is organize the reference content in a termbase according to specifications we’ll provide you with. L-Book Lite has limited functionality but can be sold via all major e-book channels.

L-Book Pro gives your readers the option of adding words to a personalized learning list and, whenever they want to, testing their knowledge via a series of automatically generated exercises. L-Book Pro gives your readers the same reference context as in the L-Book Lite, but instead of it appearing on a separate page, it appears in a pop-up without covering up the reading text. An L-Book Pro can only be read online or in a specific app, which – as an added benefit – enables you to communicate and sell directly to your customers.

For readers who prefer paper books or traditional e-readers, L-Book Lex gives them the opportunity to access the reference content in a companion app or online. L-Book Trainer adds the functionality of individualized exercises.

Why offer learning tools?

The demand for educational materials around the world is unabated. As a technical or specialist publisher with best-selling titles, converting them with L-Book Pro means you can:

  • Reach new audiences
  • Profit from the booking market for education
  • Meet growing demand for authentic contexts
  • Provide in-context exercises for discovery learning at the cutting edge of current technology
