More than 50 of ASM International’s best-selling materials engineering books are now available in the ASM Digital Library platform.

“Our goal with the ASM Digital Library is to make all of ASM’s content available in a single location to help ASM Members and other users quickly find the answers they need." -Ron Aderhold, Acting Managing Director of ASM International

ASM International is proud to announce the launch of the new ASM Technical Books site in the ASM Digital Library. The new site provides convenient access to more than 50 book titles on topics related to materials selection, processing, properties, performance, and characterization. For the first time ever, subscribers will be able to gain access to a broad collection of ASM Technical Books and receive the highest value of all Access Options that the brand has to offer. With additional legacy titles from the ASM collection and new titles being added throughout 2021 and beyond, subscribers will experience enhanced value and benefits well into the future.

The launch of the ASM Technical Books site marks the first time that these valuable content resources are available in a unified content delivery platform offering “best of breed” search, browse, filtering, linking, and content access. A new feature of the site is the ability to quickly link within a chapter to related content from ASM Handbooks, Technical Books, and the Failure Analysis Database. Engineers, researchers, and students investigating a topic can quickly navigate among ASM’s best content resources at a deep level to find the exact information they need.

The 50+ books in the site represent many of ASM’s most popular titles, including Metallurgy for the Non-Metallurgist, 2nd. ed., edited by Arthur C. Reardon; Understanding How Components Fail, 3rd ed., by Donald J. Wulpi, edited by Brett Miller; and Steels: Processing, Structure, and Performance, 2nd ed., by George Krauss.

“ASM has been a leading publisher of books on materials engineering for more than one hundred years,” said Ron Aderhold, Acting Managing Director of ASM International. “Our goal with the ASM Digital Library is to make all of ASM’s content available in a single location to help ASM Members and other users quickly find the answers they need. We are very pleased that this collection of books is now on the site.”

The ASM Technical Books site joins ASM Handbooks Online, the ASM Failure Analysis Database, ASM Conference Proceedings, and Alloy Digest in the interactive ASM Digital Library platform. Additional resources are scheduled to be added to the platform in 2021. Visit our YouTube channel to watch a short demo video exploring the features of the ASM Technical Books site.
