I trust all books are being made available, so I am just trying to follow up and make sure I/We safari users have it all. Thank you!

Yikes! Thank you for letting us know! These titles should be there and were when we first published - we will look into it straight away.

Thank you very much Mam @Sian  for your prompt response. I am sorry for bothering you but I just can't live without material. 


I noticed there is something called published date and insert date. So perhaps the lag could cause a miss? 🙂


Older editions seem to be available for the most part, though I've become voracious reader only since last few months and have only checked books/authors that I am personally interested in, nonetheless your review of the set up on a whole would help clarify. 



Many thanks again! 


PS Please let me know if you want any more info from my side. Should it be specific, please feel free to email me. Thank you!

We logged on to O’Reilly found all our titles. Safari links are redirecting to the site.  So you *could* have the old Safari link bookmarked and the content isn’t updating there?  I would suggest you try longing on from here:

It looks like you are accessing a Custom Safari Books Online Library that contains a subset of 38,225 titles from Safari Books Online's overall content. It could be your library is not paying for the full subscription and so does not include our recent titles? I think you would need to talk to your library and request that they include the titles you need. 🙂

Oh is that what it is? hmm okay, I will do that. Thank you!
