More FREE NASA Books

By Glenn A. Walsh
Reporting for SpaceWatchtower

 Last week, I reported on "NASA's Massive Free E-Book Collection":

Richard Spencer, Information Services Manager for the Library at NASA Headquarters in Washington has informed me of more free NASA E-Books, and also some free regular books in celebration of 50 years of NASA.  Here is the message he sent me:

By the way, let your readers know that the Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate is also building a collection of free ebooks at http://www.aeronautics.nasa.gov/ebooks
Also, I oversee the Headquarters Information Center which distributes and sells the books to the public.  Currently, the History Program Office is celebrating 50 years of publishing books with a massive giveaway of many titles.  The price page (including which titles are available for free) is at: http://www.hq.nasa.gov/office/hqlibrary/ic/ic2.htm. We’re distributing them for a $3.00 per book shipping/handling fee (or visitors can walk in for copies – although we will be closing to public access for 9 months beginning Aug 21st.)
