AAMA Offers Electronic Technical Documents with Launch of Virtual Library
AAMA announced the launch of the AAMA Virtual Library (AVL) during its National Fall Conference in Palm Desert, Calif., on Mon., Sept. 26.
This new program offers a system for members to purchase annual licenses in order to offer electronic versions of AAMA publications in an effort to make AAMA’s technical information resources more readily available to their employees.
The launch includes 15 document sets that are read only files viewable with Adobe Flash software. Document groupings include topics such as windows and sliding glass doors, metal curtain walls, storefront and entrance manual, skylights and space enclosures, as well as vinyl and polymer resource set and the 101/NAFS documents. Also available are document bundles for finishes, hardware, general testing, field testing and laboratory testing.
Initially, the AVL is only offered to AAMA Category 1 corporate members, technical consultant and professional members. Agreements are offered on a one-year basis that requires renewal on the anniversary of the license agreement. If a member resigns from AAMA at any time during the license agreement term, the license will automatically expire. It is preferred that renewals be submitted with AAMA membership renewals.
If a publication is revised and re-published during the life of an active license agreement, a notice will be sent to licensees, and the online AVL will be updated automatically. For more information visit www.aamanet.org. BD+C
