Searching for Standards

Using the Standards Guide

If you are looking for a standard published by a specific standards developing organization (SDO), go directly to the tab for that organization, where you will find links and instructions for locating and acquiring their standards.

Currently, the WSU Libraries has subscription access to standards from:

  • ASTM
  • IEEE
  • SAE

Standards from other SDOs must be requested via Interlibrary Loan or purchased out-of-pocket.

If the standard you seek is published by an SDO not listed in the navigation tabs (or you are unsure which organization is responsible), the Other Standards & Tools tab contains links to several global search engines which may help locate the standard.
