This is the "unlicensed" version of IBM BookMgr/2

It only works for IBM Published Online Books.

Just a quick note on how to setup IBM Library Reader:

copy the files into a target directory.

add the following statement to your config.sys


where X:\BookPath points to the path where you store
your book files *.BOO

You can then set up a program object to start IBMREAD.EXE

You might also want to set up associations to .boo files.

Further documentation is in the 3 included .boo files
