Resource Guide


Standards are official publications used in industry and trade to describe specifications and procedures. They provide rules and recommendations for:

  • quality
  • safety
  • performance and construction
  • codes of practice
  • methods of testing
  • symbols and terminology

The databases listed below provide access to thousands of standards and related resources which you will find useful for your Engineering study, research and assessment tasks.




If you need to request a standard that we don't have, please contact a Liaison Librarian for Faculty of Science, Engineering and Built Environment.
