Title: RE: Building Codes Online?

AISC seems to have their finger on the pulse better than alot of these other turkeys.  The APA is pretty cool now too.  I also would like to say supplying the shape database with the AISC manual is a very good move and thanks.

This is not true for AISC. We give you free electronic access to the bulk of
our technical information. Visit the Steel Solutions Center at,
especially the technical answers FAQ and list of free stuff like
specifications and codes here:

Bill Polhemus is exactly correct. There is a bill to be paid for these. But
we only charge what we need to for other related value-added products to
break even overall.
