Another method of searching for standards is through search interfaces by subject, by category, or by committee.
Standards go through a development cycle. Some databases and websites provide access to standards at different stages (i.e. active; draft; redline; withdrawn; etc.).
The word ‘standards’ has been used interchangeably with ‘specifications’, ‘regulations’, and ‘codes’. It is useful to keep this in mind when searching.
Note: Standards are usually not available free of charge. The Library subscribes to some standards databases. Other standards must be purchased individually by the user and cannot be borrowed via interlibrary loan.
