Books on the conversion of scientific units into their SI equivalents are relatively rare in scientific literature. There are several specialized treatises (see Bibliography) on the subject as applied to certain areas of science and technology, which contain sections on the subject, supported by conversion tables. However, these tables are anything but exhaustive, and it is often necessary to consult sources in several very different areas in order to obtain the desired information.
