O'Reilly Higher Education Ebooks (Safari)

This subscription package to over 35,000 ebooks and 6,000 videos includes primarily computer science, but with many engineering and business books too.

Technical access issues:

You will need to use UPEI's login system to use these books even if you are on campus.

The first time you use it, you will see a popup that mentions sending you an email, but that's doesn't apply to us and you won't get any email.

If the first time you use it is through a catalogue link, and cannot get past the popup asking for your "academic email" address, come here and use the link on this page first, then go back to the catalogue book link.

You should only have to do this sequence once per computer/web browser.

We recommend using any browser OTHER THAN Chrome, because Chrome does not render many mathematical equations properly.

If you copy a URL in this product to make  persistent link (for example, to a chapter), you need to use this link conversion tool so that link will work properly later (otherwise it won't).

If you are ever starting with a link into this product that insists on getting your email address first, use that same link conversion tool (in a browser other than Chrome) and retry with the modified link.

The "mobile app" provided by the platform for offline reading will not work with UPEI's login authentication system. You should however find that the normal web platform is acceptably "responsive" to small screens like smartphones.

Fall 2019 - the Library is continuing to work with the companies involved to improve the user experience regarding these authentication issues. We will update this page as improvements are made.
