Safari Books Online, a noted publisher of over 23538 technology, digital media, business books and online videos, now has a mobile interface available to users accessing Safari books through Tufts' institutional subscription. On a mobile device, access Safari Books Online through the library catalog at http://library.tufts.edu/search~S1?/asafari+books+online. On-campus users will be taken directly to Safari. Off-campus users will be asked to login with their Tufts Username and Tufts Password. Once on the site, click on the red 'Switch to Mobile Site' button in the upper left-hand corner of the screen.

The Tufts University institutional site license provides access to most of the Safari Online catalog. Title topics include Desktop and Web Applications (including Microsoft Office products), Math and Science, Digital Media, Information Technology & Software Development, Engineering, and much more.
Looking for a particular title, such as Pro JQuery? Title search the library catalog and, if available, you'll get the link directly to the book.

Once you’ve connected through the Tufts University Library Catalog page, you can also view available topics and product titles by using the Category page. On-campus user access to the catalog is at http://proquest.safaribooksonline.com/categories; off-campus user catalog access is available at http://ezproxy.library.tufts.edu/login?url=http://proquest.safaribooksonline.com/categories.
