Need A Manual? Online Ebooks Linked from Software Center
Next time you get a new OS or application from the Software Center, you may see an icon for the manual, too! Thousands of ebooks are searchable in Safari Books Online, and now many are linked to the applications you're authorized to download.
Ebooks linked next to Case Software Center products is a great idea sent to us by a faculty member. We liked it so much, it became a KSL/Case IT collaboration to bring the information you need to where you need it most!
Example: Click to download Adobe Indesign for Macintosh & you'll see the Safari Books Online logo and a link to go to manuals for the application—you don't even have to search for them!
You'll find an Overview, Editorial Reviews & Book Descriptions, and options to "Start Reading Online." Safari Books Online is always available from the Research Tools-->Database list from the KSL homepage. Use it to search thousands of books, with a convenient search box & Browse Category section to narrow your search. Try RSS alerts and get the newest title when it loads!
An activated VPN authentication is required for wireless or remote access. You should be able to click through to the texts, but if the page asks for a login, click the "academic license" link on the right side of the page. Then just click through to see titles that match the downloaded product from the Software Center.
