Standards Available through Stanford University Libraries

SLAC personnel can access several types of standards (for example, ASME, ANSI, IEC, ISO, ICC) via standards platforms supported by Stanford University Libraries. SLAC personnel can access these standards platforms as long as they are logged onto the SLAC network.

For current information on available standards and platforms and instructions on how to use them, see the Stanford University Libraries Standards page.

 Note: These platforms do not have all standards issued by a given body, only those to which Stanford has subscribed.


 NFPA standards  may be viewed online through the free link provided by NFPA (registration required).
