Safari Books Online, a US-based e-reference joint venture between publishers O'Reilly Media, Inc. and Pearson Technology Group, has announced an agreement with Packt Publishing. As Packt Publishing's first online channel distribution partner, Safari Books Online will make Packt's books and other technical publications available online to corporate and individual library subscribers. Packt's offerings are claimed to be among the most comprehensive lists of copyrighted works on Open Source technologies.
Safari Books Online will upload 20 Packt e-books initially and plans to eventually include all Packt titles within its digital libraries. Subscribers will be able to search and read Packt books, download chapters, and view the full-text of other types of content within Safari Books Online exclusive content collection. The collection comprises thousands of videos, books, pre-published manuscripts and certification guides.
As a publisher of e-books for the IT community, Packt's solutions-based books are expected to give readers the knowledge and power to customise the software and technologies they are using for enhanced performance. The partnership with Safari is projected to help meet the evolving needs of today's advanced technical employees who want instant access to information, wherever they may be.
