AIME Digital Library

The AIME digital library contains nearly 550 historical technical documents that were converted to searchable PDF format from 2008-2012, thanks to the James Douglas Library Fund income.  These archives are now accessible free to members of the 4 AIME Societies all over the world via links on their Member Only webpages.
