Steel Construction Manual Goes Digital 

November 3, 2011 from American Institute of Steel Construction

(Chicago, IL) - The next time you're heading out to a job site and need to refer to your Steel Construction Manual, there's a new alternative. Rather than carrying the nearly 4 lb hardcover book with you, AISC is now offering a digital download of the 14th Edition Manual at www.aisc.org/manuals. This is a full version of the Manual in PDF form with digital rights management applied. You can view the entire manual, print out sections, copy and paste from the file, and search for keywords -- but you can only download the file to a single computer and it cannot be transferred later.

AISC has augmented its classic Steel Construction Manual with a digital edition in response to industry requests. The price for the digital edition is the same as for the printed version -- $175 for AISC members ($350 for non-members). And if you'd like both the printed and digital editions, you can buy both for just $275 for AISC members ($550 for non-members).

To buy the 14th Edition Manual in printed or digital edition, or both, please visit www.aisc.org/manuals. (Note: Underneath the Product Description for the digital edition, you’ll be given directions on how to access the digital download. Please read the information before making your purchase, as you must follow a specific process to ensure a successful download.)
