Learning Resources

Free eBooks

UConn Storrs provides a license to O’Reilly Online Learning Resource (at: https://software.uconn.edu/support/) that includes over 35,000 eBooks, plus videos. Students with a NetID can access specific books (and within a specific book, once selected, print sections and even download with app for offline use).


SAS & SPSS, along with other software, are available at no charge from UConn Storrs through a virtual environment providing two different ways to access software remotely from anywhere, at any time on your PC, Mac or iPad. With AnyWare Desktop (formerly called SkyBox), you can connect to a virtual desktop running Windows 10 with all the available software. With AnyWare Apps, you select only the application you wish to use. AnyWare Desktop and Apps are accessed using your NetID at https://software.uconn.edu/uconn-software-online/. Every person, with a NetID, also has available to them a P drive, which is a 50G max UConn mapped secure drive.

Currently SAS, SPSS and other software are available for free student download to personal PC devices at http://software.uconn.edu/software/. Microsoft Office is also available at no cost to students at https://software.uconn.edu/microsoft-products-students/.
