AAMA Offers Electronic Technical Documents with Launch of Virtual Library
September 27, 2011

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association of Schaumburg, Ill., launched the AAMA Virtual Library (AVL) during its National Fall Conference in Palm Desert, Calif., on September 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.

"All electronic document licenses will be available online through AAMA's website," says Andrea Rhodes, AAMA's technical operations supervisor. "This offers easy access to AAMA documents that are referenced frequently by a participating company's 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 curtainwalls, 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.
