I love information, therefore I love libraries. Cal U’s Manderino Library, for example, has an exciting new collection of books available online for computer science and information technology buffs: Safari Books Online.

You can find the list of the library’s 100 hand-picked, full-text e-books by visiting thelibrary’s website, clicking ‘S’ under Browse the library’s alphabetical list of resources, then finding Safari Books Online, the first item under the Subscription Resources section, or simply clicking here.

I was blown away by the titles, many of which are on the Mac Lab’s bookshelf (and in desperate need of updating). Titles such as, PHP and MySQL Web Development, Microsoft C#, HTML and CSS in 24 Hours and Teach Yourself iPhone Application Development in 24 Hours.

Tip: Don’t stay logged on when you are finished reading a title. The service can only support 4 simultaneous users at once!

Thanks to Alyssa Archer, Manderino Library, for sharing this invaluable resource!
