All you can read – 500 IT manuals

ETH Zurich is participating in “All you can read”. ETH staff and students can now obtain IT manuals in the form of PDFs free of charge.

Students and employees are familiar with the twice-yearly sale of IT manuals. They remember the previous sample reading, long queues and search for space to hold the sale. The service is still available – but is even better than before. ETH staff and students do not have to wait for the sale date but can now order their manuals on demand, i.e. whenever they need them. What’s more, the service is free of charge.

Access to IT knowledge as and when you need it
