The Reference Data book is an encyclopedia of critical information that cannot be found elsewhere onboard the Space Shuttle. For example:
-It lists equipment no longer available if any of its several electrical buses is inoperative.
-It shows which software bits must be set or reset for problems in the computers, multiplexers, switching components, control systems, etc.
-It assists in resolving problems annunciated by fault messaging and the caution and warning system.
-It identifies the location of all stowed items including the Flight Data File checklists and procedure documents.
This STS 3 Reference Data book has been in my possession since the mission in 1982."
