A 'book' in Drupalish, the Drupal slang, is a content type which allows you to create static pages which are linked to each other through a hierarchical navigation system. On a book page you can use all the things that you can use in a Research Journal Entry (which is called 'blog' page in Drupalish). The content type book is useful for longer texts where you want to split content into different pages. As the navigation control is created by Drupal, this comes in very handy.
In the past few months TNL has gone through significant changes. Although many of those are not visible on the surface straight away, they constitute great improvements of the site. Key changes have been made especially in regard to this forum topic about books and bibliographic references.
