Safari Books Online LLC is a digital library founded in July 2000 and headquartered in Sebastopol, California, with offices in Boston and Scottsdale. Safari characterizes itself as a "platform for technology and business learning".[1]

Safari Books Online originated in 2001 as a joint venture between O'Reilly Media and the Pearson Technology Group. In 2014[2] O'Reilly Media acquired Pearson's stake, making Safari Books Online a wholly owned subsidiary of O'Reilly Media.

Safari's main product is a subscription-based, digital library[3] that includes books, videos, short-form content ("Short Cuts"), and evolving manuscripts ("Rough Cuts") from O'Reilly Media and from other publishers, including Addison-Wesley, Prentice Hall, Springer Nature, Peachpit, John Wiley & Sons,[4] Microsoft Press, Adobe Press, Cisco Press, Manning Publications,[5] Packt,[6] SAS Publishing, IBM Press, FT Press and Focal Press.

Safari has a variety of subscription plans for individuals and institutions.

Professional Societies like the ACM provide access as part of their membership benefits and offer discounts for full subscriptions.[7]

Safari purchased PubFactory's Electronic Platform, an electronic publishing platform, from RDW Group in 2012.[8]
