I was attempting to compare Thieme Bookshelf to iPublishCentral Reader as they both are associated with Thieme E-Book Library. I can gain access to iPublishCentral but Thieme Bookshelf won't allow me access, saying I have an invalid username/password. There is no field in the app to "reset" it and I did attempt to troubleshoot the problem by resetting my account password via my PC. Customer service also seems to be lacking- there is no email to reach out for help and Thieme Bookshelf "support" link brings you to the iPublishCentral downloading instructions on their main page.

Beautiful pictures - search fxn doesn't work

I love the Thieme books and this ebook was just what I was looking for. The way it works is the app is free, but then you need to buy books to fill the shelves.

Two major problems though:
1) It takes 6 minutes (I timed it on multiple bandwidths) to load the book I purchased through the Bookshelf app. If I loaded it recently, I can return to it without reloading it, but if too much time has passed, I have to sit there while it loads again. And, of course, you can't switch apps while you're waiting.
2) THE SEARCH FUNCTION DOESN'T WORK! I paid $50-60 for an ebook, and the search function doesn't work?! Unacceptable. (Note: The books are also accessible online, and the search function does work that way.)

It's good


Good resource for medical students with good functionality and decent quality. Fast in usage & very comprehensive.
