DejaVu

DejaVu is a data format designed specifically for compressing and displaying scanned images of printed material, such as book pages, a task at which it excels. Scanned materials for this course will be made available in DejaVu (.djvu) format, which is smaller, faster and more flexible than Portable Document Format (.pdf). Each image of a page also contains a hidden layer of text built by "optical character recognition" (OCR). This enables you to search through the text of the work you are reading, or to copy the text easily into another document.
