View virtual books using our Turning the Pages™ system

This version of Turning the Pages™ uses Abobe Shockwave, which can be downloaded free of charge. The volumes may not open if you block popups on your computer.

We recommend you try our new improved version, Turning the Pages 2.0™, which runs on the Vista operating system (and on Windows XP with the .NET 3 framework). It will also run on other operating systems with Microsoft Silverlight, which can be downloaded free of charge.

Finally, there are alternative versions that display static images (with enlargements and audio files) in standard web pages, in the same window. No plugins are necessary.
