Forum: opensource Subject: Uploaded books have different format

So I have uploaded some books that I scanned off years ago while at university, (that I think are out of copyright, but the searches were performed years ago).
Here is one of them:
https://archive.org/details/new-testament-of-our-lord-and-savior-jesus-christ/

It does not have the fancy flip page boo view like say this book: https://archive.org/details/cu31924029309600/page/58/mode/2up

There were a few links in the forum that I found that explained how to work with the book system, and seemed like information I was looking for. But they are dead links.

My original intent was to just upload the files and be on with my life, happy with the idea that scanning work from years ago might benefit someone in the future. But now I am being "sucked in," so to speak, and would like to make sure I am doing quality work. The reason being is that I have found many books on archive.org that I couldn't get on inter-library loan or find available for sale.

So if someone could give some some guidance, feed back, etc. So I can go about making them "correct", better interface, maybe text search, etc. That would be helpful.
Thanks
