The Army is pushing knowledge to the point of need by making e-Publications (EPUB) available for download to Soldiers' mobile devices. Doctrinal publications are accessible as Portable Document Formats (PDFs) on personal computers and some mobile devices, but viewing them on mobile devices is less than optimal. By the end of June, the Army will have converted many Army doctrinal publications to an EPUB format — making it easier to read on computer tablets and smart phones. Users may also be able to bookmark, highlight and insert notes on the publications. By the end of the month, FM-6-22, Leader Development, will be converted to an EPUB as well. Also, select doctrinal manuals will be available as e2Book Doctrine Supplements. These publications will have videos, animations and other imbedded multimedia. You can find the first e2Book, ADRP 1 Doctrine Supplement, at the Center for the Army Profession and Ethic, or CAPE, and the Central Army Registry, or CAR.
