Q:  What is an E-Book?

e.gif (2769 bytes)

ELECTRONIC:  E-books are available and readily accessible to any person with a computer, printer, and an Internet service provider.

ECONOMICAL:  E-books cost you only the price of your paper and ink.  You print them yourself, customizing the number of pages and quantity.

EASY TO MAKE:  Simply follow our suggestions for printer configuration, select, print, and assemble the pages that you want.

EDUCATIONAL:  The subject material of our E-books is always positive, inspirational, and educational... pages that are approved for all ages.

 

Printing Internet pages can be frustrating.  Just when you find the information you are looking for, you print it out only to find page breaks in the wrong places and pictures cut in half and appearing on separate sheets.  The HALL OF HEROES E-Books are designed to take the information you are looking for from our web site, break it down into logical pages that can be printed, collated, and bound into an attractive FULL-COLOR book - all for the price of your time, paper, and ink.

Whether you are looking for a book on United States Presidents to use at school, or a book on Medal of Honor heroes for personal use or a special event, chances are you will find it at the Hall of Heroes.You can print ONLY the pages you want, and even print our optional covers.  The cover can be personalized to send someone as a special gift, or given out at special events by a sponsoring organization.

About Hall of Heroes E-Books

Hall of Heroes E-Books are a new feature in our site, designed to meet the needs reflected in many of the e-mails and other requests we have received.  They are designed to give you an attractive resource booklet for personal use or for distribution to others.  (E-Books also made a nice, economical gift.)  Booklets are listed TOPICALLY on our LIST PAGE.   Several booklets of similar topics may be combined into a single large volume.   (For example, we have individual e-books listing Medal of Honor recipients by ethnic heritage.  Rather than printing each individual booklet, you may wish to combine them all into one large BOOK.)

E-Books are printed from a menu of pages like the example shown at the right.  This gives you the ability to customize your E-Book by printing only the pages you want.

Cover

Each link in the menu opens a web page in a separate window, that will print as a SINGLE page on your printer.  There are no banners, ads, or hyperlinks on the e-book page you open.   In most cases, the e-book menu will include a cover page you can print for your booklet.

PRINTING OPTIONS:

2)  If you are a frequent visitor or wish to print in large quantities, we have built in an easy one-step process we call the E-Book Publisher.  This NEW feature is a little more complicated but well worth learning if you print a lot of our E-Books.  For information on how to use our E-Book Publisher feature, contact our webmaster for a brief tutorial.

 

Re-Use Policy:

Hall of Heroes E-Books were created to provide people like YOU with the information they want, in an attractive booklet format to be proud of.  None of these pages are covered by copyright -- everything is designed to be freely shared.  You may feel free to print as many pages as you want, arrange them in any order, compile pages from different E-books into single or separate volumes, and even print multiple copies for distribution.  The following are the only limitations we place on the re-use of these pages:

  • E-books or individual E-book pages may NOT be sold.  If you print multiple copies to share with other people, share them as freely as we have shared them with you.
  • When printing multiple copies for distribution to others, with the exception of the cover, E-book pages may NOT be altered.  Footnotes, comments, or other information (such as a reunion roster, company information, etc.) should be added to your E-book as an appendix, and identified as pages included by YOU as an addendum to the e-book.
  • E-book pages MAY be included as inserts or addendum to other booklets, notebooks, or handouts, so long as the parent volume is not sold as a commercial item.

For additional questions regarding re-use, e-mail us at:  E-Books.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q:  Why does each e-book have to be printed from a table of many different links?

In order to assure that the pages of your e-book are not broken up improperly due to differences in printers and browsers, we have created each individual page separately.  This means that you print the pages one-at-a-time, and we can be reasonably certain that each page will print properly without "run-ons".

Q:  Why does each linked page open in a SEPARATE window?

There are NO LINKS for navigation on an e-book page, so they MUST be linked to from the menu.  By opening each page in a separate window, you can view/print each page without leaving the menu page or having to press the BACK button.   (After viewing/printing a page, make sure you close the window to return to the menu.)

Q:  Why does my printer cut off some of the information on a page?

E-book pages are set up in tables to insure proper sizing for printing.  You may need to adjust the margins in your printer options.  (See PRINTER OPTIONS in the HELPS section below.)

Q:  Why is there an empty box at the bottom of most e-book covers?

The empty box at the bottom of the cover allows you to customize the cover.  If an organization is printing multiple copies for distribution, they can put their name, event, date, etc. in the box.  You can also use it to create a personalized GIFT (by inserting something like "To My Father on Veterans Day").

 

Q:  How do I customize the cover (add text in the empty box)?

There are two ways you can accomplish this, depending on your computer and the software you have.

  1. Download the cover to your computer, open it in a graphics program, add the text you want, and then print.  (You do not need a graphics program to do this, many word processing programs such as MS Word work well.)
  2. Print the covers directly from our web site, then create the text you want in a text or graphics program (aligning it to fit within the area of the white box on the printed covers, and then "over-print" on your existing covers.

 

Q:  Why does the cover take so long to download?

To provide an attractive, quality cover for your E-Books, they are prepared as .jpg files in a size that will fill the front page.  This makes them a large image file, that may take a minute or two to completely download.

 

Tips & Ideas:

  • Our E-Book pages look nice not only stapled together in a booklet format, but also displayed as POSTERS on a wall or in a frame.  Use your imagination to create displays you can be proud of. 
  • After collating the pages of an E-Book, you can have it COMB-BOUND at many local businesses (PIP, Office Max, etc.) for about $1 @.  When doing this, consider adding a clear plastic sheet to the front and a blank sheet of paper and clear plastic back.b
  • Print the cover on a quality, photo or card stock of paper.
  • Give personalized E-Books at gatherings and reunions. (For example, a reunion of veterans of the 173d Infantry Brigade might print an E-Book of 173d Infantry MOH recipients, note the event and date on the cover, and distribute them to all attendees.  (You could do such a booklet at a cost of about ten cents each stapled, $1.25 @ with a nice comb binding and plastic cover.)
  • Include E-Book pages in handouts, programs, or notebooks used for special events, seminars, or presentations.

 

Helps:

PRINTER SETTINGS:  All E-Book pages are designed to print as a single, whole page.  This may necessitate three adjustments:

  1. Adjust your print margins.  If your pages get "cut-off", you may need to change your page margins.  We recommend using the lowest allowable margin, .50" (though many will default to .46" on the bottom margin).  To adjust the margins, before printing a page go to FILE on the menu bar at the top of your browser, select PAGE SETUP from the drop down menu, and change your margin settings.
  2. Tell your printer to print only ONE page.  Often, though your E-book page will print properly on one page, your printer will follow with a blank page (due to a final RETURN) in the document.  This is no big deal, you can re-use the blank paper.  To avoid this however, especially when doing multiple copies of each page, instead of clicking the printer ICON, print from the PRINT option under FILE in the MENU bar, selecting the radio button to print "Page 1 of 1".
  3. Set your printer preferences NOT to print the PAGE TITLE (header) and URL (footer).  This procedure may vary depending on your browser and version.  Usually you can instruct your printer NOT to print these by insuring the the HEADER and FOOTER text boxes (Under the PAGE SETUP option) are BLANK.    If this doesn't work, use your browser's HELP menu.
