No. Safari has placed restrictions on downloaded content and no longer allows educational users to use offline features

While you are online, An iPad App for Safari Books called 'Safari to go' is available. This app will allow you to set up saved lists of books that you can read while you are connected to the Internet.

To use Safari To Go on your iPad, you will need to set up a personal account.


On a computer at CNAQ, go to the Electronic Journals & Databases page and click on Safari Books.

Click on 'Get a Personal Account' and click through to creating a personal account on the next screen.

Fill out your first name and last name, and provide your email address. Safari Books will send you an email with your password.


When you open Safari To Go on the iPad, you can sign in using your username and password. You will see all of the Safari books that CNA-Q subscribes to. You can download a maximum of 10 books to your iPad.
