Established at the University of Missouri-Rolla in 1990, the Center for Cold-Formed Steel Structures (CCFSS) was funded with an initial grant from the American Iron and Steel Institute. The Center was renamed in 2000 for its founding director, Dr. Wei-Wen Yu, and today the Center continues to "provide an integrated approach for handling research, teaching, engineering education, technical services, and professional activity." On their homepage, visitors will find five main sections, including "Resources", "Publications", and "Calendar". In the "Publications" section, users can look through past issues of their newsletter, table of contents from their proceedings from 1971 to 2002, and their technical bulletins from 1999 to the present. Moving on, the "Resources" contains a database of the Center's books, and equally importantly, a listing of relevant professional association websites. Finally, visitors can also sign up for email updates from the CCFSS and look over their upcoming conference events.
