|COVID-19 ALERT: The library is now staffed Mon., Wed. and Fri. from 8-4, but librarians are available to assist patrons ONLINE during normal business hours and full-text databases are accessible 24/7 to VDOT employees from this site.|
Skillsoft Books is a subscription database providing VDOT employees unlimited free access to access to nearly 80,000 E-books, book summaries, courses, videos and other resources in subjects like: Information Technology, Desktop Software, Finance, Business, Leadership, Engineering and more, through the URL: https://library.virginiadot.org/resources/skillsoft-books
If you've never seen Skillsoft Books this guide will help you get started. If you've used an earlier version of the database, this guide will help you learn about new features, and show you how to migrate your personalized settings from the old to the new interface.
VDOT employees have used Skillsoft Books resources since 2008, so you may remember it by its former name "Books24x7." In addition to a new name, the latest version of this resource has a whole new look and feel and several new features to help busy employees find and use relevant resources. Best of all, a new "Single Sign On" authentication method means the newest version o will automatically recognize VDOT employees without the need for a special user name/password.
That's right! If you are logged in to the VDOT network and you click on a link to Skillsoft Books, you will be automatically recognized by your VDOT network credentials, so you can focus on finding the resources you need instead of remembering a second user name/password.
