Safari Tech Books Online Adds Customized RSS Functions
Want to read the "Secrets of the iPod & iTunes" or other new books on wireless networks, game programming, or your favorite web application? Is your interest in technology primarily for other related business disciplines?
Take a few minutes to look at the new enhancements in the Safari Tech Books Online. a collection of over 3,200 ebooks. Use Safari's new custom RSS feeds to automatically find out when a new title is added to a specific e-book category. It's better than browsing (although you can search for the newest books by a favorite publisher) and gets the top new titles to you faster than you would find them by browsing.

Save Time @KSL, with the new 3M SelfCheck!
When you only have a few minutes and there's a line at the Main Service Desk at KSL....or when you're in the library at 2:00 a.m. or 6:30 a.m. when a Security Officer is there, you now have the option of using our new 3M V-1 SelfCheck machine. You can check out in three languages, if you'd like to practice your Chinese or Korean or English, too.
Get your book, check it out on the SelfCheck, take your receipt, and get on with your schedule! It's fast, easy (screen graphics and onscreen instructions in the upper left corner), and fun. Your receipt has reminders about renewing online, the Hours Hotline, and the homepage url--good for finding answers to how to renew, what Regular Business Hours are, and more.
Catch a glimpse of the SelfCheck in the photo of none other than President Hundert using it this week–he's holding his receipt in his hand. Find the SelfCheck right on the Main Service Desk, next to library staff who will help you through the steps the first time!
