We need to downsize ISRM, and we are cataloging our library. One way for everyone to help us, is to adopt/buy our excss books. This book page is currently under construction by the Librarian/Curator. Check back often as more are added to the list for sale. We'll work on textbooks first, followed by OEM specific manuals. Contact us if you need something. Most manuals will be $9 or less. Shipping will be $5 on 1 or 2 6x9 manuals and $8 on 8-1/2 x 11 books using media mail. Buy 8 or more and shipping is free within the USA.

Note: Almost all these manuals and older books are contained within the ISRM Reprint Series Volumes 1 through 36. See bottom of page for Table of Contents.

Note: I was able to create local copies of individual manuals that were formatted with the quality used for inclusion in the above ISRM Reprint Series into a 5.5" x 8.5" booklet. They are two side laser printed sheets, folded and stapled. If you require a reprint of one or more of the manuals (the Volumes are a better bargain) I can create a stapled booklet for you. Up to 6 sheets (24 pages) = $5, 8 sheets (32 pages) = $6, 12 sheets (48 pages) = $7, 16 sheets (64 pages) = $8, 20 sheets (80 pages) =$9. Shipping + $6.

Preservation Project of Slide Rule Instructions from the ISRM Library


ISRM's Slide Rule Instructions Library Preservation Project available on Amazon

With the help of many Friends of the Museum, is in its 3nd year of publishing reprints we have compiled, scanned and edited thirty-six 550-page volumes of all known brands, country or language. Every one of the 550 page volumes contains from 6 to 30 manuals and captures most of the popular models from each of the brands, and are available in paperback or hardcover on Amazon. which will print to order in 7 countries. The small royalty that we receive goes to support ISRM. This continuing project allows the handling of 50-120 year-old paper manuals and textbooks, prior to 1973 that were rapidly deteriorating from aging and the elements.
