Safari Books Online

The UHMC Library now has a subscription to Safari Books Online, an amazing collection of about 4,000 technology books and other resources accessible online.

What is especially cool about SBO products for network administrators and software developers is that you can copy code snippets directly from your browser window and paste them into your live development environment.

Think of it this way when you visit Borders or Barnes and Noble, you flip through a handful of books and glean perhaps a bit of information here, a bit of information there, and so forth. On the other hand, with Safari Books Online you can run a keyword search across thousands of volumes, aggregating search results by relevance, by date, or by some other criterion of your choosing.
