Books 24x7 is a virtual library of books available to all students at Sheridan. There is an entire library of IT books in all kinds of categories that are relevant to all the things you'll be studying! New books are added frequently (you can request an email of which books are added if you wish) so this is a great way to stay up-to-date without spending a fortune on textbooks.
To access Books 24x7:
All the resources in Books 24x7 are free to you (actually, you've already paid for them via your fees) so learn how to search for books in any subject, not just for this course! There are lots of great books on all different subjects - Unix/Linux, Java, .NET programming, Systems Analysis, networking, etc. You can also create folders or "bookshelves" and save your favourites to different shelves for easy organization. Also, if there is a particular part of a book you want to find again easily, you can bookmark it! You can bookmark pages or chapters and leave yourself notes or reminders about why you set the bookmark.
In this course, I will always give you the ISBN for the book you should search for, then you can perform a "Catalog Search" by ISBN. You can print pages from these books, but please be environmentally conscious and don't print entire books!! Print only those pages that you need. You can also save paper by storing pages on your computer!
