Safari Books Online is the premier digital library providing technology, digital media, and business books and videos online to academic and library users. The number of concurrent users is unlimited.
This page provides directions on accessing Safari books. If you are an instructor, please share this information with your students.
The brief video below describes how to access the Safari Books Online collection.
In many cases, the e-book will be listed in the UC Libraries Catalog.
To access a specific book, you can bookmark or share the link to the catalog record (permanent link at the bottom of the record screen). The record includes the access link to the resource. Alternatively, you can do a title search; make sure to select the right edition.
f you are doing a keyword search, for example, for book on computer security, use "safari" as one of your keywords to limit your search to Safari books.
On the record screen, click the link to the e-book in the grey box.
Safari e-books can also be found by searching Summon. Just like with the catalog, you can "safari" as one of your keywords.
For the book you want to access, click on the book title or "Full Text Online" link. Once you follow the link to the Safari at O'Reilly, follow the directions in the video to access the text.
