HANDBOOK OF DANGEROUS MATERIALS - Sax
This amazingly complete reference book offers invaluable information to
those directly concerned with safety problems: manufacturers, consumers
and shippers of chemical products; foremen responsible for safe storage and
the overall safety record; and executives who administer the operations.
It makes readily available simple, concise and authoritative statements of
the hazards involved in thousands of dangerous materials, specific instructions
on how to minimize them and useful first aid information. Not only
is this the most complete book on the hazards of general chemicals but it
also covers explosives, fungus infections and radiation safety. Information
includes: toxicity, flammability, storage, handling, physical properties and
shipping regulations. It also contains the complete up-to-date revision of
the I.C.C. Shipping Regulations which will prove welcome to many users
of this major reference work.

PUNCHED CARDS: Their Application to Science and Industry -
Casey & Perry
The first complete comprehensive summary of mechanical devices (and
punched cards in particular) for scientific information problems is presented
in this long-coveted volume. All those concerned with handling large masses
of technical data will find the techniques described in this book of utmost
value. It describes in detail how to store and codify for immediate reference
the vast literature of science through the use of punched cards. The
advantages already achieved by using punched cards have resulted in their
effective application to an ever-widening range of problems. The purpose
of this book is to make existing experience and methods available to all
those who deal with scientific and technical information and who must find
what they want quickly.
