Revision as of 16:52, 29 February 2016

This page consists of books we'd like to get to stock the library. It is divided into 3 sections. The first is books going on this term's MEF proposal, this should be done by whoever is writing the proposal. The second is a list of actual books with ISBN. The third is vague ideas of what kind of books we need. The goal is for this page to be emptied by way of moving things from section three up to section one and then off.

A bunch of these were bought. That needs to be updated.

Programming Windows by Charles Petzold used to be the definitive guide to Win32 http://www.amazon.ca/Programming-Windows%C2%AE-Charles-Petzold/dp/157231995X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1269631483&sr=8-1

TCP/IP illustrated (All three volumes $180) http://www.amazon.com/TCP-IP-Illustrated-Vol-Protocols/dp/0201633469

Vague Ideas

These can be anything from a title missing an edition choice to a topic name to a binding style/colour.

Theory
