Sorry For The Mess!

Please excuse the mess while we are redesigning the entire website! It is a large undertaking to complete this project on a live website. There may be very short times (5-10 minutes) where the site will be unavailable. We thank you for your patience while we clean house.

We are very excited to be adding new features & departments to the site.
The first new department we have added is CD-Roms to our bookshop. There currently are only a few titles but it will be growing rapidly in the near future.
There were 6 new book reviews added this month.
Visit here:

Coming Events! Please visit our Future Events section there are many events, meetings & seminars planned for 2006.
