Safari Books Online Adds Short Cuts

Safari Books Online (, a joint venture of O'Reilly Media, Inc. and Pearson Technology Group, introduced Short Cuts, a series of short documents covering technologies either too early in their life cycles or too narrowly focused to become the subject of a full-length book. Short Cuts are produced by experienced authors who use the medium to provide concise, focused coverage of a topic. Like the books available through Safari Books Online, Short Cuts are editorially vetted and held up to publishing industry standards. Usually fewer than 100 pages, Short Cuts are designed to provide a dynamic authoring model with fresh and up-to-date information, offered in a time frame and format appropriate to the field.

Safari Books Online's reference resources currently include more than 4,000 books from leading technical and business publishers O'Reilly Media, Pearson Technology Group, and others. The e-reference library is designed for programmers and IT and Web professionals. The service is committed to moving beyond book content. In February, it launched its Rough Cuts service, which provides evolving manuscripts that encourage reader feedback during the publication process.

Access to Short Cuts will be included at no additional cost for Safari Library subscribers. For Safari Bookshelf users, most Short Cuts will take up one-half of a bookshelf slot. To see the lists of current Short Cuts available from participating publishers, visit
