Books to prune

Murphy's suggestions

Murphy was in the office, came up with a suggested list of books we can get rid of. Below:

  • powerpc programming/architecture, we don't do things on powerpc
  • Practical UML statecharts in C/C++
  • Animation: Master 2002
  • We have at least 4 copies of "the C programming language", we can get rid of some
  • Java 1.3 in a Nutshell, we don't need that
  • VRML
  • Frame Relays
  • OS 2.1 programming book
  • Books on Modula 2/3
  • Numerical methods, Metafont book, Developing user Interfaces
  • Calculus textbook on the right shelf, 5e is old
  • any old coursenotes for courses that aren't being offered or are old
  • we have two copies of principles of computer science
  • two copies of elementary numerical analysis
  • two copies of intro logic and sets for computer scientists
  • numerical recipes in C should be replaced with 2e or not at all
