Whilst watching youtube video of an occasional Soyuz spacecraft launch (Soyuz ТМА-19М in this case), I've noticed (at 8:07) this large bundle of books.
Another video of TMA-16M flight at 39:40 shows two paper checklists and one tablet being in active use by the crew during the flight, and, in addition to this, the large bundle of books stored in what essentially looks like a dedicated compartment on the right.
I can only assume that these are manuals and instructions for the crew (as opposed to being part of the mission payload to be delivered to ISS), otherwise why would they be located in such a spot, within the crew's easy access.
There seems to be 9 volumes of the "books" in the first screenshot. I might be mistaking, but it seems to be too much of printed instructions to be potentially used during short 6-hour mission (which is mostly to deliver crew to ISS and then later to return the crew back to Earth).
I don't know for sure, but for comparison, much more sophisticated Apollo missions probably had not much more (if not less) of printed instructions on board (I.e. flight plan, LM timeline book, EVA checklist etc.).
I don't know what these "books" in the Soyuz are (i.e. are they really instructions for the crew for various non-standard situationss and/or spacecraft's assemblies manuals or not), but if that is true, I am wondering why there is so many of them.
One of the reasons could be that there is actually a small amount of them and they are just simply duplicated in two or more languages, for example.
But my main question is: Being quite a bit more complex system, in comparison with Soyuz, how much of the printed materials (manuals and instructions for the crew's use) were on the Space Shuttle flights for the ISS-related missions (the reason I limit the question for these type of missions is because they would be more or less similarly tasked and having similar (i.e. short) length)?
