Google Book

NOTE: Previously, I stated that you could only do Google Bookbinding with Adobe Acrobat Professional.  I have since realized that this is a fallacy – you can do most of the tutorial with just the free Adobe Acrobat Reader.  But, by using Acrobat Reader, you will NOT be able to delete or otherwise modify pages in your Google Book. So, due to popular demand, I have written up a tutorial about how to print out Google Books for bookbinding purposes. I like to call it Google Bookbinding.  For one thing, there are many old and out of print books about bookbinding available on Google Book Search. Printing them out in this way saves paper and allows for a more authentic reading experience.For this tutorial, you will need either Adobe Acrobat Reader 8 OR Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional. Current iSchool students can find it in the IT Lab, as well as the Resource Room and labs in the Kilgarlin center.

So, without further ado, click here to download the Google Bookbinding Tutorial .
