Standards are an agreed way of doing something - making a product, delivering a service, managing a process or delivering materials for example. This is a brief version based on BSI's definition.
We have databases of full text Standards you can use to help with your research.
We have access to two key collections.
We hold a small number of foreign standards in print - these should be on the library catalogue. You can also request them via Inter-Library-Loans (if we don't hold them or have an older version).
American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)
International Standards (ISOs / IECs)
Society of Automotive Engineers
