Creating a book from Wikipedia items with the new Wikimedia utility
Early this weeks, Wikimedia started a new web tools to turn Wikipedia items into book. Just enable the book creator in your web navigator in the Wikipedia side bar and insert items from a navigational toolbar at the top of the page, or insert entire libraries of items from the categories page.
You can order the items and sections before the book is finished and then export as a PDF, OpenOffice or EPUB filename. If you want to remember their creation, the aggregate book can even be ordered, reprinted and hard-copy. As with Instapaper and Pocket, this new function allows the user to view items off-line, but offers a wider range of advantages in terms of organization, aggregate and format.
Creating a book with Book Creator in Wikipedia: Set of 8 paces

Then click on "Download". If you want to keep your book, please do so now. Confirm that this is a set of Wikipedia items.
Then click on "deactivate". Then click on "Deactivate bookmaker". When you deactivate the book creator without having downloaded your book, your'Special Book' will be canceled. When you reactivate the bookmaker, you will need to completely reactivate the pages you added to your old book. Is it possible to load and modify a Wiki book off-line?
Is it possible to produce several ledgers at the same book? Can I make a book with items in different language versions in Book Creator? Many thanks to all writers for the creation of a page that has been viewed 17,674 people.
Launch a new Wikibook
A" Wiki book" is a book that has been created with a wiki. There are many other kinds of book that don't fit here. No pre-defined minimal or maximal length for a book. A few of these will be exceptionally long, others exceptionally brief. The most important thing is that the book contains the necessary information.
Generally, our ledgers do not have firm copies. Our ledgers can, however, have PDF files that are relatively robust. A lot of folks believe that typing a book is too big a job and that it can be discouraging to begin a new book. But it doesn't have to be a big effort to write a book.
Some publicity can help draw other participants who can divide the load of making a new book. When you begin to write the contents, other folks can come along and help you with the organisation and sizing. In the reading room you can ask other seasoned book writers for help with editing and organisation.
They' re big and scary. The wiki, however, allows you to create parts at once and get help from other writers and writers. Prior to starting a new book venture, seriously ask yourself if you have the timeframe and power to promote it through the early phases of evolution and help you gain and get used to new publishers.
When you don't have it, your book can wilt and end up as an empty stump. So if the book you want to author doesn't even exists, why don't you do it? Everyone can make a new book as long as they are willing to give it a little bit of extra free space and let it soar. Allows you as a participant to instruct a topic you know.
Makes it possible for other users to understand the topic without having to foot the bill for the cost of a textbook. Inspire other Wikibookers to add to your book, making it a better asset. It' s been said that the best way to know a topic is to give it a lesson, and so the first point above is really a double-edged saber.
You as an writer can not only help other poeple to understand the topic, but you yourself can also better understand and appreciate it. Traditionally written text books are usually very costly. In addition, book publishing houses have a tendency to produce several issues of a book, one every few years.
If a new version of the book is published, the old version becomes outdated, even if it is more widely available, cheaper and available at a reduced priceinst. A good book needs several qualities: With all these things gone, a book is likely to become either a perpetual butt, a candidate for an expensive fusion, or a whole orphan.
It' a good book needs a plot, a course, a purpose. There is no need to publish unhelpful and uninformative literature. First the best book starts as sketches or blueprints. It is presented in a traceable order. Making sure your book has a consistent narration throughout will help to avoid it becoming a macro media.
The book should have a good, sound infra-structure. The reader should be able to easily browse the book and new participants should know exactly what information should go where. The book should also provide the necessary user-defined template it needs and should also find and use some other template.
A book should have a lot of emphasis and not be too wide or too blurred. Probably a book entitled "Physik" is not as good as a series of smaller, more definite ones such as "Statik", "Dynamik" and "Elektromagnetische Wellen". By the time a reader comes to your book, they should know exactly what it will contain.
We' ve already written a number of textbooks on the foundations of the sciences, mathematics, languages, etc. Every new book does not always have to deal with the basic principles. Wide Spectrum Each book must be large enough to fully address the area. Such a book as "Introduction to the theme X" can by nature only include introducing materials.
With the same remark, "Advanced subject X" by its very nature just refers to those subjects that can be described as "advanced". Any book on Theme Six should not be limited to dealing only with one particular part of Theme Six. One good general principle is to divide the materials into sub-themes and to include a whole sub-theme in each book.
For practical reasons, these demands are also a prerequisite for a book to become a featured book. If you receive this award for your book, you can extend it and go beyond what you can do. Perhaps there is a gashing gap in a certain bookcase ("I can't believe they have a mathematical bookcase without calculation!"), or perhaps there are many smaller ones on the topic that could actually be combined into a new one.
Are there other ways other human beings can do this? Do you think other users will be able to grasp this issue? Answering all these yes you are on the best way to starting your work. Implied, if there is a need for your book, then there is someone who needs it.
The vaguely qualified person is your intended group and the person for whom you write your book. Since you are going to write a text book, your intended readership will most likely be a student. A number of topics are not good for a particular group, just as certain types of typing are not good for a particular group.
Nor will we try to create a children's book with big words and complex phrases. It is a clear distinction in the way a particular discipline can be studied between different groups of students: If you consider this, there are several ways to create a new book for your topic.
You can either create a book that is specifically designed for a specific group of people ("Statistics for Mathematicians"), or you can create a book ("Statistics") that looks at the subject from different perspectives. You can divide the book into two different parts (one for reading books and one for reading mathematics), for example, or you can divide each page into different parts (a part for the algraic formulae and results and a lower part for the calculations).
The selection of titles is the first and probably most important job of a new writer. An excellent book makes it easier to find and memorize. Please keep in minds that these are not tough and quick to follow and that many good old business titles have not followed these guidelines:
However, you may need Qualifier if there are other textbooks on your topic. Don't sub-title your book. Add the sub-title to the book title, not the book name. Do not number a book consecutively. In order to make a new book, you must first make a new page.
From the Help:Pages#Create and build a new page by following the instructions. It' important to ensure that your titles are clear and follow the correct nomenclature. Enter the book name in the text field at the top right of the page and click on the magnifier symbol.
When a book with this name already existed, you can either select a new book or try to add to the name. Books should use book name. The first few characters of the important words are written in capital in the header. Please note that the first character of the book is always written in capital font.
When you have created a new page, you will be redirected to a new empty page known as a coming page. If a new user comes to your book, the first page he sees is the first one. Clean-up and organization patterns for your book are also placed on the landings page.
You should use the landings page as a title page with a hyperlink to the index. It follows a print book-meta-phore, in which you first see the book's title and then turn to the index. This is the index page, with a hyperlink to an additional title page and hyperlinks to all pages of the book.
Note that all of them really need a directory to remain organised and to be linked to all sub-pages of the book. However, not all of them need covers, and many do not. There are several important factors in the list of contents: To the reader The index shows all pages of the book and the order in which they are to be read.
When the book contains a logical structure from one section to the next, the pages should be consecutively sorted. About the Author The index is an organisational structure that shows which materials are to be placed where and in which order. It is especially useful when creating the book for the first time, as the index looks like a kind of "to-do list" to show which pages have not yet been typed.
This is the simplest directory containing a listing of all pages of the book, one in each line, e.g. in an enumeration listing. Extended TOCs can divide groups of pages into labeled paragraphs and contain hyperlinks to related titles and book mea-data. You can sometimes begin with your own book and make it perfect without help.
However, you will often want to orientate the size and organisation of your book towards existing ones. A few instances of popular featured titles are featured as well. They can be used as good templates for your new book. It is this understanding that should be important when you are titling your book, because you want your book to have a name that the reader can find.
A book sometimes has many aliases. This means that sometimes there are many similar concepts that relate to the materials in a book. One frequent example is an abbreviation for the book's name. When no one else uses these pages, turn them into referrals to your book. If an individual is looking for "animals,""living beings," or "creatures," they can all be included directly in your book.
We will also discuss book contributions in a later section of this book. Persons interested in a book donation should review the whole donation page and the text of the GFDL licence before doing anything.
