The BICSI Resource library is available in a set of hardcover binders or CD-ROMs for $1,029, which provides a savings of $213. The Resource Library combo, which includes a set of manuals and CD-ROMS, is $1,675, which reflects a savings of $349. The Resource Library’s shipping rates include a $60 flat rate per library package for standard U.S. shipping and $40 per additional library package ordered.

The BICSI library includes seven technical manuals plus the ITS dictionary:

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
