Searching for Standards

There are many available standards and many organizations promulgating them.  The Library cannot collect every current standard, but you can use the links below to identify needed standards and then ask us to try to acquire a copy for you.  Please consult with a librarian for more information about identifying and obtaining any specific standards you need for your research or teaching.

Note that one of the main collections of standards available in the Brown Library is that from the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).  The Library now subscribes to the online version of the ASTM Standards and Engineering Digital Library, which is a vast collection of industry-leading standards and technical engineering information (link below). The Library covers a broad range of engineering disciplines, including aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, environmental, geological, health and safety, industrial, materials science, mechanical, nuclear, petroleum, soil science, and solar engineering. Older print editions of these standards are available in the Library's book stacks under the call number TA401.A653.

Other major sources of standards and standards information include the following:
