Library news: Safari

Recommendations for Safari Books Online

Safari bookshelf is an electronic reference library which allows you to search, and download chapters, from the electronic versions of a broad range of the best technical books from leading publishers.

This is a yearly subscription paid from the Informatics Library allocation, which at the moment, allows for 40 slots (each title is worth 1/2 - 3 slots) and 6 simultaneous users. To view the current subscription visit Safari Books Online and click on the 'My Bookshelf' tab.

There are over 3,000 titles to choose from within Safari Books Online and it is possible to exchange titles within the subscription. The School Library Committee has decided to review the titles in our collection every 3 months. We are currently creating an online form, but in the meantime, if you would like to recommend a title for possible exchange, please contact the School Library Rep, Marcelo Cintra at

Please note, that in order to help the Committee make decisions regarding possible book exchange, you should provide as much information as possible to support your recommendation.

If you have any general comments on this service, please contact Sarah Kelly (, Liaison librarian for Informatics.
