Standards Research Guide

This guide provides some of the sources useful in identifying and locating industry standards.

Online Standards Subscribed to by MSU Libraries

Standards Available in Print and CD-ROM Format

Searching for standards in the library catalog

The library does have some individual standards in hardcopy. Search the catalog by all fields, title, or subject heading.

Enter key terms. Since most of the standards are published by professional organizations, you may type the organization name to do a search. Example: ANSI and wood

If the library does not have a subscription to the standards, you can try to request for a copy through Interlibrary Loan service or check with your department if the department has funding for ordering the specific standard you are looking for.
