Who remembers 3-ring binders of Alloy Digest pages?

    Many of you may remember flipping through countless pages of Alloy Digest 3-ring binders to find the materials data sheet of interest. Today, that rich history of datasheets that provides alloy compositions, properties, performance characteristics, applications, and processing details is now available digitally on the ASM Digital Library. This is a fully searchable platform of all past and present Alloy Digest Issues.

    We recently released a press release that talks about the rich history of Alloy Digest and how @Alok Nayar
    ​ will be carrying on the legacy of the publication. Personally, I think this is awesome! Thanks Mr. Nayar for carrying on the torch!

    I appreciate the feedback. Although we need the revenue to support our ongoing improvement, there is still a ton of value baked into an ASM Membership. Attached is a Membership Benefits brochure that highlights all of those. If you haven't logged into your 'My ASM' in a while, I encourage you to do so, scroll down to 'My Content' via the left navigation bar, and check out all the great content that you have access to via Membership.

    Please let us know if we can ever do anything to assist you.

    Nate,

    I am a member of ASM. From email discussions with you, I learned that access to Alloy Digest is not part of the membership. Thanks for letting me know.

    I'd like to encourage ASM to build a member community that includes access to Alloy Digest and similar products, even if that's limited to older items (say published more than 5 years back). It's a real challenge to build community around closed-off resources that only some can afford to access.

    Sincerely,
      Mike

    Myself being a student and soon a young professional really appreciate the availability of datasheets and handbooks. I completely support Michael's position on releasing older content for ASM members.
