Materials Information Handbook Goes Online For $179: ASM International, the materials information society, has made its 20-volume ASM Handbook available on a subscription basis, through technology from eMeta Corporation.

Cost: members of society: $179 per year; non-members: $279; and academic or corporate licenses are offered starting at $1500.

By the end of the year, the society anticipates completing the second phase of its online publishing initiative, using eRights to move the ASM Alloy Center-a collection of some 8,000 two-page data sheets plus its extensive property databases–into the online suite.

For an interview I did with eMeta founder earlier this week, see, “Selling Subscription Technologies is Part Education, Part Conviction (free registration required).
