I've been receiving advertisements for Building Codes, ACI Reports and Standard Practices, AWS Standards, etc. on CD. Many clearly ought to be on the shelf or in the disk-stack in the office of any practicing structural engineer. But, some of them, I may have need to refer to no more than once or twice before the next cycle of changes calls for buying the next set -- at $400 to $600 per CD, that's hard to justify. Instead, since every engineer seems to have a unique collection of reference that matches their niches, I'll call around and see who has the stuff I need that I could borrow when I need it; and I tend to be liberal lender in return. Would it be possible for SEAOC to open a library of references on CD that could be accessed and downloaded by email. Or opened from a web page? Free would be ideal for us little guys, of-course, but subscription, or pay-per- download (to pay for the librarian and the costs of CD purchases) would make a lot of sense. After all, what's an association for? Nels Roselund Structural Engineer
