Industry standards are not usually available on loan from other libraries. Instead, they must be purchased from the organization that issues the standard, or from a commercial document supplier that specializes in acquiring standards.

You can obtain technical standards through ILLiad subject to the following conditions:

  • We will order industry standards for faculty, graduate students, and staff without charge, with a limit of $1,000 per requester in a calendar year.
  • Some standards will be retained and added to the library's collections for use by other patrons.

Requesting a standard

Please log on to ILLiad and select Request a Standard from the left menu.

We need the following information about the standard you want:

  • Standard number
  • Complete title

You can find this information about the standard you need by searching the standards database maintained by IHS/Global, the world's leading distributor of standards and other technical documents. See also our guide to finding standards.
