Free Standards due to COVID-19

A number of standards organizations are making standards related to COVID-19 freely available during the pandemic. Free access is time-sensitive and cannot be guaranteed.

Definition of Standards

Standards are documented agreements containing technical specifications or other precise criteria to be used consistently as rules, guidelines, or definitions of characteristics, to ensure that materials, products, processes and services are fit for their purpose.

Accessing Standards

How do I access standards?

Most standards are available through their sponsoring or issuing organization such as ANSI, IEEE, SAE, or ASTM. Below are standards that BU Library subscribes (indicated by the lock icon) to or are freely available online. For other standards, please contact the Engineering Librarian, Aleshia Huber, to request a specific standard.
