Excerpt
SCRIPT SONY DEVICE EBOOKS Hi. Maria here, from the School eBook Library. Today we’re going to learn how to use the Sony PRS 500, 600 and T1 Readers to download and enjoy eBooks and Audio Books. We will also learn how to use the the Sony Tablet devices to dive into your favorite book at home or on the go. Lets start with the Sony Readers. These devices are all capable of downloading eBooks and Audio Books from the School eBook Library website. All three devices are very similar but do feature slight differences in functionality and appearance. We will highlight these differences as we move through the tutorial. To begin, plug your Sony USB cable into your Sony Reader device. Then plug the other end of your USB cable into your PC or laptop. The screen on your Sony PRS-500 should depict a USB cable. The Sony PRS-600 screen will read USB and depict a USB cable and the screen on your Sony T1 device will read “USB connected”. Tap the “Data Transfer Mode” button. Your device will now display a screen which reads “Data Transfer Mode” Now, use your PC or laptop to navigate to the School eBook Library website. You can find us by typing SchoolLibrary.com into your browser or search for us using Google by typing in School eBook Library. Then select our site from the list of search results. After arriving at our homepage, be sure to log in by selecting the “My Account” button at the top right corner of the page. Then enter your username and password and click “sign in”. Now that you’re signed in, lets navigate back to the home page and review some of our exciting and easy to use eBook discovery tools. There are our daily picks, our author spotlight, which updates regularly, and a list of local favorites. This list is great because it gives you insight as to what readers in your area are enjoying. You can also choose a book by browsing through our authors in the authors community section. Another fantastic tool is our eBook finder search engine located near the top of the homepage. Now lets find a book. First hover your cursor over the books tab located in the main menu bar. In the drop down menu that appears you’re able to see five different collections of eBooks. Our Academic, eBook, Graphic Novel, Journal Magazine and Audio eBook Collections each offer unique and exciting content. We will come back to a few of these later. For now, select the eBook Library Collections. The eBook Library collections contain more than 2 million books. You can navigate through the pages of the various collections by clicking the forward and back arrow buttons near the bottom of the page. All of these collections have wonderful offerings. Lets select one, The Blackmask Online Collection, by clicking its image. Now lets download one of my favorite books, 1984, by clicking the image above the book title. This brings us to the “book details page” where you can find all sorts of useful information about the book you’ve selected such as the author, publisher and even the file size. Now lets save this book to your Sony Reader device. First left-click the title of the book. At this point you will be prompted with a login window. You are required to log in twice because your profile and your eBook access accounts are on two different servers. Your profile will last forever but your eBook access account requires annual dues. Enter your username, password and click ok. From here, the download process for each internet browser is slightly different so lets walk through each browser step by step. If using Mozilla Firefox, in the window that pops be sure that Save File has been selected and click ok again. One additional window will appear. We will come back to this later. If using Internet Explorer, a small window will pop up on the very bottom of the screen. Select Cancel. Now that you’re logged in, you can right-click the title of the book. And select Save Target As. If using Safari, click cancel in the window that pops up, then close the downloads window. Now right-click the title of the book. Then select “download linked file as” If using Google Chrome, right click the title of the book, then select “Save Link As”. Regardless of the browser you’re using, one additional window will appear. Scroll down the left side of this window to locate your Sony device. And select then click save. Once you’ve saved your book, you must eject the Sony device. To do this, select the start button at the bottom left corner of your screen. Now select “computer”. Find your Sony on the right side of the window that pops up, right-click your device and select “Eject”. If using the PRS-500 device your book can be found by using the navigation joystick to select the books folder. Then select your book. If using the PRS-600 device your book is available inside the Books folder. If using the T1 Reader you can now find your new book available to enjoy on the front page of your device. SONY READER AUDIO BOOKS The entire line of Sony Reader devices also allow us to download audio books. First, remember to use your Sony USB cable to connect your Sony device to your PC or laptop. Turning your attention back to your PC, after arriving at our homepage, make sure to log in by clicking the “My Account” button at the top right corner of the home page. Now that you’re logged in, lets find an audio book. Once again, hover your cursor over the books tab. This time, select the Audio eBook Collection. This takes takes us to our audio library which has more than 23 thousand books to choose from. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is a classic. Lets select this audio book by clicking on the image above the book’s title. All of the books in the audio collection have been divided into chapters for your listening convenience. The chapters are listed on this page. Lets select chapter 1. This brings us to the “Book Details page” which has all sorts of useful information about this book. If you scroll down you’ll see that the book has automatically begun playing and that the other chapters of the book are listed below the audio player here. Now lets save this audio book to our Sony device. Remember. The download process for each internet browser is slightly different so be sure to refer to the earlier portion of the video if you need help with the download of your book. Before you enjoy your new audio book, remember to eject the Sony device. After ejecting you can find your new Audio Book available to listen to on your PRS-500 device by navigating down to and selecting the audio folder. Then select your book. To find your book on the PRS-600 device, tap the “More” button, then tap Audio and find your book. If using the T1 device, tap the right arrow button on the home screen. Then select the Audio button. And your new audio book awaits. SONY TABLET SURFING THE WEB The Sony Tablet S features a full color display and a much larger screen than Sony’s line of Readers. The most unique thing about the tablet however, is it’s web-readiness. This means you can use your Sony device to navigate to the School eBook Library web page and download eBooks and Audio Books directly onto your device; making the world’s books even more accessible. Here’s how easy it is. First select the Browser on your device. Then navigate to our website by typing SchoolLibrary.com into your browser. Or use Google to find us by typing in School eBook Library and selecting “Google search.” After arriving at our homepage, be sure to log in by selecting the “My Account” button at the top right corner of the page. Then enter your username and password and tap “sign in”. Now that you’re logged in, lets find a book. Select the Books drop down menu by holding and dragging it downward. Now select the Graphic Novel Collection. Now lets select our Adventures in Wonderland Collection. Select issue number 2 by tapping its image and then by tapping its title on the book details page. Now our graphic novel will download. Open the recent downloads list by dragging it upward from the bottom right corner of your device. Then select your new graphic novel and enjoy. It’s just as easy to download an audio book to your Sony device. Once again start by selecting the Books drop down menu. Now select “Audio eBook Collection.” Lets select “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.” And select Chapter 1. This brings us to the “Book Details page” Download your book by selecting and holding its title. A menu will pop up. Select “Save Link”. When your download completes you can listen to your book anywhere, anytime. Downloading books from The School eBook Library is easy and makes your Sony Reader or Tablet more powerful than ever before. Thanks for joining us. Until next time, this has been Maria for the School eBook Library.
