Safari® Books Online


Safari Books Online provides flexible access to current authoritative resources in computer science, game design, programming, and IT. A joint venture of O’Reilly Media and The Pearson Technology Group, Safari Books Online offers a valuable collection of reference content from these two premier IT publishers.

Users can search hundreds of books simultaneously or connect directly to a specific title from the library’s catalog . Each title contains a complete table of contents with chapter links for easy page-to-page browsing. All charts, graphs, and other images are included just as originally published, ensuring that users get total access to the entire range of content offered in each title. Searching is available by keyword, author, publisher, or category. The navigable interface allows printing within copyright limits, and search results include thumbnails of book covers.

SMU’s current subscription provides access to a portion of the total Safari title list. If you have requests for specific titles or topics you’d like to see available, please contact
