Safari Tech Books cancelled
As of December 31, 2018 the UMKC Libraries no longer have access to the database Safari Tech Books Online.
Why was this resource cancelled?
Safari Tech Books Online was cancelled due to budget constraints. The University Libraries general budget allocation was reduced by 2.25% for 2018-2019. The cost of our subscription resources increases annually at an elevated inflation rate, so unless the library's budget increases over the previous year, it is necessary to cancel some subscriptions every year.
