AAMA Offers Electronic Technical Documents with Launch of Virtual Library

AAMA announced the launch of the AAMA Virtual Library (AVL) during its National Fall Conference   in Palm Desert, Calif., on Mon., Sept. 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. This offers easy access to AAMA documents that are referenced frequently by a participating company’s employees,” says Andrea Rhodes, AAMA Technical Operations Supervisor.

The launch includes 15 document sets that are viewable with Adobe Flash software. Document groupings include topics such as windows and sliding glass doors, metal curtain walls, 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. Agreements are offered on a one-year basis that requires renewal on the anniversary of the license agreement. If a member resigns from AAMA at any time during the license agreement term, the license will automatically expire. It is preferred that renewals be submitted with AAMA membership renewals.

If a publication is revised and re-published during the life of an active license agreement, a notice will be sent to licensees, and the online AVL will be updated automatically.

Each company will have a login and password, which will include the AVL agreement and links to the AAMA documents purchased. Currently, license agreements will be purchased and processed by contacting Andrea Rhodes.
