Dear Desi:If your valuable old books are really old (more than 70+ years from their first publication and their copyrights expired, you may want to contact Google Books and see if they will include them in their program of scanning old books and posting the PDF on Google Books for free down load. I found one of the greatest structural engineering books of all times , " The Pontibus" by one of the great bridge engineers; John Alexander Low Waddell there. Many AASHTO bridge engineering provisions came from this book. It is a must read for anyone interested in design of steel and concrete structures , especially steel structures. The URL is here:
Best wishes and thank you for trying to share your books with others. "Hassan" Abolhassan Astaneh-Asl, Ph.D., P.E. www.ce.berkeley.edu/~astaneh On 3/1/2013 5:11 PM, Harold Sprague wrote:
I would suggest that you contact Linda Hall Library.http://www.lindahall.org/ This library is strictly a technical library and is where the ASCE sent all of its books. I frequently research at Linda Hall Library. They have a lot of old great texts that you can't find anywhere else.Regards, Harold SpragueDate: Fri, 1 Mar 2013 15:44:25 -0800 From: djk1engineering(--nospam--at)gmail.com Subject: Re: [SEAINT-SEAOSC] Good Home for old books?
