Tar Heel Shared Reader

Welcome to the New Tar Heel Reader

Welcome to the 2013 edition of Tar Heel Reader. This update has been in continuous development since December of 2011. We have added many new features to make it accessible to a greater range of users and devices. You may:

  • Browse all the books on the site using two switches; simply use your mover (for example, right arrow) and your chooser (left arrow) to move through any list of books.
  • Find books using several criteria. For example, you can search for Reviewed books about Animals, rated E for Everybody containing the word duck. All the search controls are sticky so they keep their values throughout your session.
  • Create Collections: named, saved, and shared Favorites lists.
  • Read and create books on your phone or tablet.
  • Upload pictures directly from your phone or tablet, if supported by your device as on iOS6.
  • Use your own pictures at Flickr in books you create by entering your email address in the search box.
  • Download books in PowerPoint or EPUB format. EPUB format books may be directly imported into iBooks and other eReaders for use offline.
  • Use the site in your own language; we have English, German, Italian, Spanish, and Turkish now with French and Hindi translations underway. If you would like to help translate Tar Heel Reader into your language, contact us.

If you have any feedback, questions or concerns about the new design, please contact us.
