Comparison of Infotools in Quickview vs. eBrary Reader

InfoTools includes bookmarks, marginal notes space, highlighting, and many useful links to external resources like dictionary, encyclopedia and map lookup sites. The InfoTools and their functionality are slightly different under the QuickView and the ebrary reader plug-in.  The plug-in reader performs essentially the same tasks as the ebrary QuickView Reader, but has a few additional features.

Note: Quick View is the default ebrary reader for an ebrary book.
