Your technology questions answered

If you are working in with computers, especially networking, programming or software development you know how quickly everything changes. You have to access to the latest information to keep up to date. That's where books can be problematic - the minute they are published they are nearly out of date.

That's where we have the best eResource for you - O'Reilly for Public Libraries has the latest tech books. It even has early release books which are raw and unedited, so you can read the latest on a subject before the edition is published. It also has all the latest published books covering all topics including data engineering, machine learning, python, software architecture, coding practices and more.
