Engineering Standards: Finding Standards

Standards published by industry or government sources are an important and unique source of information.

Finding Standards

To find a specific standard, you will need to know (at least some of) the following:

  • Acronym and name of the publishing organization
  • Standard number
  • Title of the standard
  • Date of the standard
  • Subject of the standard

If you don't have a specific standard in mind, you can use the following databases to explore standards related to broad topics (e.g. plastic tubing). These databases can also be used to confirm information about a particular standard.

Full text availability varies by publisher and standard. You may be able to request full text standards through InterLibrary Loan.
