Full record

A major component of this database are the ASTM standards, which are used worldwide. Product labels often state "Complies with ASTM..." Researchers who are currently developing products are interested in current ASTM standards in order that the product they design will be in compliance. Lawyers in the midst of litigation are often interested in
older ASTM standards that were in effect at the time the product was manufactured. Individual standards, perhaps around 10% of the total collection, are updated annually. Previously, we purchased the print volumes of these standards every three years. Access to newer versions between these purchases requires requesting through interlibrary loan. Users had to make use of the print collection in the library and photocopy their needed standards. Now we provide access to the complete set of up-to-date standards online.
