Finding standards

Many standards are listed in SearchWorks. To find standards, search in SearchWorks for the name of the standard issuing organization (e.g. ASTM, ISO) or the individual standards title. Please note, some standards are grouped together under the issuing organization, so you won't find them by title.

Instructors interested in getting copies of ISO Standards for use in the classroom can now get copies for students via the ANSI University Outreach Program. For information and request forms please contact Sarah Lester.

Don't see the standard you need via one of the resources below, try browsing the ANSI Incorporated by Reference Service.

Online standards via TechStreet

Access selected full-text online standards from the following publishers via the TechStreet platform. You must have the File Open plugin for Acrobat, to view the full-text files.  Access to these standards is restricted to Stanford users only. *Note: Additional Standards previously available via TechStreet can now be accessed using ANSI Standards Connect.
