      Almost all of the books, manuals and guides are the type of materials I want us to accumulate in the MARCH Reference Library. Hopefully this library will become a valuable resource for people restoring and using vintage computers and software.

      To help get the library going I plan to donate all of the installation guides and manuals I've accumulated over the years for various PC adapter cards. Remember when adapter cards had jumpers and switches? Documentation for boards and computers sold before the Internet are hard or impossible to find online. Our library can provide a central respository to fill that void.

      Your reluctance to donate all your stuff outright is understandable. We will need to develop means to document ownership of artifacts on load to both the museum and the library that does not deface the item yet still allows for it's use (on site) by members. In the meatime, please hold your haul while we work with InfoAge on space, obtain book shelves and filing cabinets, etc.
