Access to books before they are published - Really?



Because I work in a fast-paced, high tech environment, frequently there are moments when I need information that's not easily or readily available, usually because it hasn't yet been published. So when Safari launched its Rough Cuts, I knew that this new publishing approach was going to be just what I needed.

Now I - and all Sun employees - have before-it's-published access to Safari's leading authors' books. Rough Cuts are an author's manuscript, still in draft form. The author not only wants people to read the pre-published manuscript, but is also loking for insights, comments, and critiques.

Sun employees can now view Rough Cuts titles online. Just click Add to put the title in your Favorites. The title will be updated as the author and technical reviewers make changes and you'll see new versions as they're created. Once the manuscript is published, it will be added to the regular Safari Library as a book.

Tips

\* Select Rough Cuts in the Quick Links drop down (once you are logged in)
\* Search for Rough Cuts by searching in the TITLE field
\* Provide input to authors by creating a PUBLIC NOTE (everyone can see these notes)

Check it out! Learn and stay competitive by having early access to quality technical information.

For employees, go to Digital Libraries & Research from the SunWeb KeyLinks drop down.

For non Sun employees who are interested in Safari and Safari Rough Cuts - you can check their public website and Rough Cuts site.
