National Academies Press

Have you ever heard of the National Academies Press?
The National Academies Press (NAP) was created by the National Academies to publish the reports issued by the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Medicine, and the National Research Council, all operating under a charter granted by the Congress of the United States. The NAP publishes more than 200 books a year on a wide range of topics in science, engineering, and health, capturing the most authoritative views on important issues in science and health policy. The institutions represented by the NAP are unique in that they attract the nation’s leading experts in every field to serve on their award-wining panels and committees. The nation turns to the work of NAP for definitive information on everything from space science to animal nutrition.
Sounds like they'd have a lot of interesting information to read, doesn't it? Well, they now are offering over 4,000 titles as free PDF downloads. Plus, all of their future reports will be available for free download as they are released.

This is a wealth of information available to all, so add it to your bookmarks!
