O'Reilly Safari from your local Library

My 6-month EuroFoo Safari account expired about a month ago but as a newfound avid user of the library (my kids simply love it), I suddenly remembered an announcement back a year or so ago that the Copenhagen Municipal Libraries had purchased subscription to O'Reilly's Safari Bookshelf.

Well-hidden on the Library website, any Copenhagen resident can log into Safari using their social security number and library pin code.
Only downside seems to be that I have to share the bookshelf with people reading "Sams Teach Yourself Active Serverâ„¢ Pages 3.0 in 21 Days".

Excellent. This reminds me of the time (a couple of years ago) when the pubic libraries had BETTER access to electronic editions of scientific journals than the university libraries had. In genuine danish style there was a pool of money for public education ("folkeoplysning") but not one for research.
