  Nothing New? It may appear that there is very little new in the last several weeks.

Precisely the opposite is true. We have received an immense quantity of donations and our "office" and much of the garage is filling up. So we've done some intense scanning work to restore things to "normalcy".

As we get to the point where we can see the office floor again we will add lots of great new things, ranging from two decades of Mix to several decades more of "Hobbies" from the UK and many more years of the radio technical and management magazine Radio World from the 90's and 00's
  Help Us Grow Much of the growth of this site comes from contributions. Please let us have scans or original copies of missing magazines. We will provide prepaid shipping labels in the US and shipping assistance in the UK, so let us know if you want to help..

One section has business, music and programming books, the other has technical, electronics and engineering books. And you can specify a search area by type of content, too.
Sep 20 Note to Users
about date-based searching
I have been asked about date-based searches There are no publication dates on most items on the site. The only date is the scan or PDF creation date, which is not relevant to the document history. I have eliminated the “sort by date” as it is really not possible to do so without editing all the files (nearly 10,000,000 of them in the searches) with the date in YY-MM format ahead of the document title

If I had a few volunteers, I’d do that. As it is I have thousands of documents piled up waiting to be scanned!  .(Hint, Hint)
Sep 18 Record World Replaced August 1, 1970 with complete copy, including charts. As mentioned before, it is usual to find music industry magazines without the charts as many retailers removed them to post in their locations and many record company offices would post the charts when they had a it happening.
  Music Week  UK Added April and May issues from 2004
  Byte Added three issues from 1992 and three from 1993  They are underlined.
  Note to Users I depend on site users to "double check" my work.. From the original scan to placing the completed and processed PDF on the site, there are nearly 50 individual steps, all of which can produce errors... from missing links to inverted pages to erroneous links. Please let us know if you find a mistake!

Thanks to the dozens of users who have responded and allowed me to fix broken links, non-responding links and other errors.
