The page says: "
    How big is your collection? If the size of your entire collection
is between 5-20MB, you're all set. Otherwise, you'll need to make two
bundles-- one bundle of 5-20MB for use on individual laptops, and a
second bundle of unlimited (but reasonable) size for inclusion on each
school's library server. "
