American Mathematical Society Books Online


American Mathematical Society Books Online [pdf]

"The American Mathematical Society (AMS) was founded in 1888 in order to further mathematical research and scholarship. Since that time, they have embarked on a number of outreach programs designed to educate the public about the importance of various mathematical endeavors. In the past several years, they have been developing the AMS Books Online website, and it’s quite a resource. The works were all originally published by the AMS, and they can be browsed by author or subject. The subject headings include analysis, general interest, logic and foundations, and number theory. Users can download individual chapters from each book, and there are currently over thirty books available on the site. Visitors should make sure and check back, as there are plans to add books to the site periodically."

National Technical Reports Library — coming soon from NTIS

From Bill McGahey at

"To further enhance accessibility to the NTIS collection, NTIS will be launching the National Technical Reports Library (NTRL) during early Spring 2009.
The NTRL will provide access to:
Bibliographic records of more than 2,000,000 technical reports
Downloadable full text of 500,000 of these reports in Portable Document Format
The NTRL operates on a subscription-based system interface that allows users to do queries on the large NTIS bibliographic database. The intent is to broadly expand and improve access to millions of bibliographic records (pre-1960 to present) and 500k full-text documents in Portable Document Format that are directly linked to the bibliographic database."
More information will be forthcoming.
