SharePoint documentation as e-books: tell us what you think
We’ve been hearing from some of you at conferences and in email that you want to be able to take TechNet content offline on your e-readers (Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble Nook, and so on). We’re starting to figure out how to do that, and we’d love more input.
Please leave a comment about which e-reader you use and what content you’d most like to read on an e-reader.
If you’re looking for something to read offline immediately, here are some resources.
CHMs updated monthly
These compiled help files won’t work on your e-reader, but any computer running Windows should be able to open them. After you download a .chm file, you don’t have to be connected to the Internet to read the content. (If you open the .chm file and see no content, unblock the .chm file as described in this KB article.)
- Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010
- Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010
- Also available for Microsoft Search Server 2010, Microsoft FAST Search for SharePoint 2010, Microsoft Project Server 2010, Microsoft Groove Server 2010, and Microsoft Office 2010
These books are compilations of TechNet library articles in .doc, .pdf, and .xps format. Most e-readers can open .pdf files – just connect your Barnes & Noble Nook or Sony Reader (video) to your computer to transfer a .pdf file. If you use an Amazon Kindle, you can send .doc files to your Kindle.
