The Automation Hall of Fame Book Shelf will initially list books, articles and web sites of pertinence to the manufacturing community. In later refreshments it is planned that the Book Shelf will link the visitor to a publisher of the material. It is also planned to add short reviews from qualified reviewers. Listing in the Book Shelf is not an automatic guarantee that the book will answer the immediate needs of a visitor nor is it a blanket recommendation by the Automation Hall of Fame.
Books are presented in italics.
