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.
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.
