Class 15: Final Pre-pub Checklist

Civilian_Conservation_Corps,_Third_Corps_Area,_typing_class_with_W.P.A._instructor_-_NARA_-_197144We’ll be using iBooks Author to finish our iBooks today (Report to Digital lab / Clark Library).

Note: You will be adding your last blog post (reflection) as a final portion of the lesson. That can be your look back at the of the entire document based lesson process.

Here’s our final pre-publication checklist

  1. We will use the Inspector/ Document to disable “Hyphenate.”
  2. Your chapters will need your names. If you have a website, Twitter or LinkedIn page, etc – you can link to it so readers can find you.
  3. Does your chapter include relevant dates (or eras).
  4. You will need to have links back to documents / content. They should not just link to jpg file, but the entire source as listed in whatever archive you used.
  5. Sources can be cited adjacent to document or at end of the lesson as Work Cited.
  6. All links should all be checked to see if they work. To save space consider just using the words source and making it a hyperlink.
  7. Looking for icons to spice it up? Check out The Noun Project. They are free and should be cited in your sources if the name gets cut off of icon.
  8. Some of the images you used are bit fuzzy in resolution. We can look for higher resolution versions.
  9. If you have large images, you can use a setting to make the images pop out to full size. (inspector/ widget/ interaction/ goes to full screen)
  10. Be sure you do not have any placeholder text in widgets “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet….” That needs to be removed. iTunes will not accept the iBook.
  11. Look to be sure you don’t have any empty text boxes you might have added. They will be in the center of the page
