There are a number of other, similar interfaces used for organizing books on external sites. There are also on-wiki and external resources that may be helpful in other parts of this project.

Book organization[edit]

Collection extension's book organization page
Booktype's book organization page

The Booktype software (demo) has a very nice interface for organizing a book.

  • "New chapter," "new section," and "import chapter" buttons
  • Chapters and sections (different levels) are visually distinct by color
  • Chapters or sections can be moved by dragging the rectangles
  • "Edit" and "view" links from each chapter
  • Chapters and sections can be empty
  • Chapter completion status is displayed on the left side ("new," "needs content," "completed," "to be proofed")
  • Exportable as "book," "ebook" (Kindle, iPad, general), "onscreen PDF," or ODT
  • In view mode, the table of contents stays in a column on the left side, with the chapter displayed on the right. This is used in lieu of navbars.

Metadata[edit]

There are many metadata collection templates and forms that can be used to decide what types of data should be collected:
