Safari Tech Books Online is a popular database and when you are only able to obtain preview mode access in an ebook, the maximum number of simultaneous users has been reached. Depending on what specific ebook you're interested in, there are two possible recommendations.

You can search the PittCat+ catalog and limit your results to Book/ebook to see if you can get the ebook from somewhere other than Safari.  You may also want to try to access the book at a later time.  Sometimes it's just a few minutes later.  Other times, it's quite a bit later in the same day.
