    At work, I'm working on a list of books the company will be looking into investing into for it's library. Below is the list of books and pre-priced out sources if anyone is interested in the books I currently think of interest:

    (+++ Books I have not read, *** Books I have read, the more */+ the better the book in my opinion.)



    Also below is “The Magic of Light” - this is an investment book and a good book to read (the white light design theory) - if there is more than one copy, put bids in on all of them... They are worth in the range of $150 to $200. Per copy. I got my own copy for $145.00 last year and it’s well worth more. On the other hand, I could kick myself for not buying it while it was still being published and in the $20 to $30.00 range.

    On my own I just bought "Hearing the Light" from PLSN to supplement a past purchase that was interesting, "Sixty Years Of Light Work". I like tech history. I also bought a copy of "Syllabus for Lighting the Stage" to replace a photo copy version I lost and am still looking for a copy of "Glossary of Stage Lighting." McCandless's other books - not well known, very interesting. Other than Elmhurst Community College (Inter Library Loan) having copies of all three books, I'm not aware of any other place that has all three books by him. So many books I didn't even list above I'm personally in the market for, so little budget at least in other than over time able to buy.

    There was also currrently available books that I specifically did not list such as "Stage Lighting in the Boondocks" (more a valid history book than a book telling how to do tech) and "Electrical Safety for Live Events" that's at best Euro based in my lack of use for it. Personal reasons for this after buying them and reading what was advised causes for not advising such books for this at work library the younger tech people will hopefully start reading from - that is after I'm done reading the books I don't yet own. Granted I more prefer to own a book I read... than of course I just volunteered to be the librarian...

    On the other books above, I'll submit the list to the big boss and see how far his expressed intent to provide some "seed money" towards this new tech library at work goes. This granted all tech books will be signed out as per a library so they don't just disappear. I expect or hope he will use his corporate credit card to purchase the bulk of the used books and allow me to do a PO for a good number of the others. All dependant upon how generous and intent to help teach the techies where I work the cash flow for this ammenity goes. No doubt I'll further refine the list once given a budget, otherwise one never knows. Big boss is willing to spend money in helping to teach the tech people... a few or more books could become possible. Otherwise there are some books such as on truss ladders that I will get and others I'll shoot for. Goal will be over ten to start and a funding for more if popular in growing the library. Perhaps I can work out that one out of every 100 lamps I send back to the manufacturer for credit can go for book buying. That would keep the library sustained in constantly having new books.

    Save your recipts - tech books are a tax write off either for an individual or corporate entity.

    Just got a new office, if I can find a better placement for the plotter then I've got crazy mad amounts of wall space, and I've been assembling a library for a while now. One of my favorite finds is an 1885 first edition of a complete works of Shakespeare that I found in a pile of donated books sitting in a puddle in our garage. It was one of the few not eaten up with mold.

    Thanks Ship, That's an amazing list.

    And a tip for those of you young folks out there who want to learn something. Print out this list and start hitting the used book stores. I just picked up a copy of the great "Designing with Light" for $8 at used book store... saved about $40.

    Used books,... love them, them's the key to knowing ones tech - broad base of info or understanding of the past. Once tech books have to get into compuer based learning, it leaves a lot less room for explaining fully theory and craft.

    Dover books... stock up your library with them - especially if at the used book store. Give your phone number or E-Mail address to the local used book store owner - they just might let you know when they find something of interest.

    For me beyond or amongst others it's:

    Shut Up Van! (Ixnay onay hetay ellspoway!!) There are some secrets we don't share here my Northwest friend. Now they will all go on-line and find great deals and purchase them. Then, when I drive through Portland for a few days in Lincoln City next week, all the cool books will be gone!!

    Well, At least they can't shop the Columbia Sportswear Outlet on-line.

    FYI you can cut a PO to amazon and they should take it for marketplace (used stuff) as well though I'm not 100% on that part. The link is down at the bottom of the page for corp purchasing as I recall.

    Ship, anything on technical direction, scenic design, or drafting using vectorworks? I already own Sham tickoo's autocad book which I love.
