O'Reilly Safari Learning Platform

Tutorial for using the eBook platform O'Reilly Safari


In 2018, O'Reilly Safari Learning Platform replaced Safari Technical Books at Tiffin University. With this transition, Tiffin University's access to content improved significantly with these changes:

  • No seat limits
    An unlimited number of users can be accessing content at one time.
  • Additional content
    The learning platform contains additional content to books, such as case studies, videos, learning paths, tutorials, and interactive books.

Any content links to Safari Technical Books will stop redirecting in Fall 2018. If you are still directed to Safari Technical Books, please report it to
