ASTM - American Society for Testing & Materials
  • ASTM Standards - UB has all of the ASTM standards and test methods in print.  The title of this 70+-volume set is The Annual Book of ASTM Standards.  It is kept on the lower level inside Lockwood Library in the Science & Engineering Reference Collection, where it is shelved under the call number TA 401 .A64.  Volume 1 is the index for the set and contains both a subject and alphanumeric listing of all of the standards included in the collection. If you need an ASTM standard from this set, you can contact Erin Rowley, Engineering Librarian,

IEEE - Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers
  • IEEE Standards (Current) via IEEE Xplore - UB has online access to the full text of all IEEE standards through IEEE Xplore. Click on IEEE Xplore.  Once connected, from the top menu select BROWSE and then from the pull-down menu select "Standards"; then use the search box to search by keyword or by standard number if you have one.
