Database Spotlight: The New Safari Books Online

We have an amazing database to share with you all. We’re excited to share the new and improved Safari Books Online.

The platform offers users the full range of current content, with unlimited user access.  Practically speaking, this means simultaneous online access for an unlimited number of users!

With titles by O’Reilly Books, Cisco, Packt Publishing, APress, Adison-Wesley Professional, Wiley IEE, and IBM Redbooks (and many, many more!),  the new database also offers users a selection of case studies and video tutorials by book authors.

Topics covered by titles (current editions only, no older editions!) range from business to career development, from security to hardware, and from data to software development, to name a few.

There are some nifty features that allow you to curate a notes section of content you want to refer back to, and a way to select preferred topics so that you are informed if new titles come out in that area. Pretty neat stuff!

You can find the link to Safari Books Online in the A-Z Databases list on the UW Tacoma Library website.

As always, please contact us with any questions about this and any other databases!
