Yes and no.   Tufts Libraries license Safari's many works on technology and business, including miscelleny such as travel books.  The works are indexed by the Tufts Catalog with proxied links, but Safari (through our license) provides webpages not PDFs of chapters. 

To read their e-books on your tablet or smartphone registered for the Tufts network, follow these steps.

  1. Access Safari Books Online (with your UTLN or Library Login).
  2. Select Get a Personal Account to register via a link sent to your email, which will become your username.
  3. Download the Safari to Go app (from the AppStore or PlayStore) and intall it.
  4. From the Tufts Network (via wireless or VPN) login with your email and Safari password.
  5. You may save several chapters to its Offline Bookbag for subsequent reading.

Tufts' subscription does not cover downloading of a PDFs for all works. If you see only 4 icons (including a printer), downloading is not permitted for that chapter or book.  Printing then works only page by page, alas.
