	About a year and a half or so ago, an APA representative gave a
presentation that had erratta or new higher shear values than that tabulated
in the 97 NDS for glulams. It is an NER report, not an ES. It is at home so
I can't remember the exact report number. Try the ICBO website or wait until
tomorrow and I'll look it up.
