Thank you all for the information. I would like to preserve the information
and get the books to good homes if possible. I will get a listing of what
is here. If the others that have modcomp books and docs can list what they
have scanned and availible, that can save on a duplication of effort
scanning something that is already online.

AFAIK, I have an entire library of MODCOMP
documentation - consisting of
one thousand manuals as PDF's. I will check with the person who had the
original manuals scanned and check to see if it is O.K. to zip them up and
them to AL to post on bitsavers. (I expect them to say "O.K.").

Where are you located? We have a small amount of

could take on a box more of the most useful paper docs for
to round out what's already here.
