I think you might need some more basic things in that collection too, I guess it all depends upon how much stuff is left but things like electronics need a huge number of steps before you can get even a single electronic component.
So I would suggest things like books on metallurgy (how to extrude wire etc), chemistry (how to make led acid batteries and thing like that) and I guess even books on how to find and mine the metals to do that with in the first place.
That stuff only applies of course if it isn't just a case of cannibalism from previously built things
