Q. When I'm using Safari Books Online, why does the site time-out so quickly?
When I'm using Safari Books Online, I get frustrated because the site logs me out after a very short time. Can't you extend it so that I can use the book!
Unfortunately, we are not able to change the time out period in Safari Books Online. We share the resource with a number of other libraries, and there are a limited number of "seats" available at one time. In order to let other users have a chance to use materials at Safari, the system logs out any user who is inactive for a set period of time. If you navigate to another page periodically, the timer will reset and you will be able to stay logged in.
