The documents available here in the Library are in the public domain and thus freely available to all.  These documents range from the current newsletters and publications from the U.S. Forest Product Laboratories, to publications such as the Practical Blacksmithing volumes published in 1888 and even includes some user manuals for antique equipment .  As more documents are available, they will be added to the library.  While most of these older documents have been superseded  by newer technologies, they are nevertheless a fascinating glimpse into our past.  Enjoy them!
