Proposal in the 2016 Community Wishlist Survey: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/2016_Community_Wishlist_Survey/Categories/Commons#Implement_Internet_Archive_BookReader_in_Commons_.26_Wikisource
Problem: When we view a scanned book in PDF or DjVu format in Commons or Wikisource, its always single-page view with no option to go for previous or next page in that preview. Every-time we go to the next page, we need to click on the drop down menu of pages. See [[ File:The Bird Book.djvu | this book ]] in Commons for example. For book readers, its more like viewing images than reading books. This not only creates difficulty in reading, but also in identifying missing, duplicated pages etc. if the file needs to be corrected.
Who would benefit: Commons & Wikisource editors and readers
Proposed solution: Implement the open-source Internet Archive BookReader in all wikis specially Commons and Wikisource. For [[ https://archive.org/details/birdbookillustra00reedrich | the same book in Internet Archive ]], [[ https://archive.org/stream/birdbookillustra00reedrich#page/n3/mode/2up | see the difference. ]] It has features like single view, double-page view, thumbnail view, zoom and a wide variety of other features.
