O'Reilly ebooks you find in Discovery Search or directly on the O'Reilly Safari Learning Platform require you to enter your VT email address.
When you first land on an ebook's page or the O'Reilly home page, you'll be asked what institution you are with. Choose Not Listed, then you'll enter your @vt.edu email address. Entering that address is sufficient to read the ebook in your browser.
The system will email you a link to create a profile on O'Reilly and create a password for that profile. You'll use the password you created to log in the next time you use the site. Once logged into your profile, you can annotate ebooks and make lists of ebooks.
You can't download these ebooks through your browser, but you can use O'Reilly's mobile app (and the profile you created above) to read ebooks offline on your mobile device.
