If we don't have access to the standard you need, our Interlibrary Loan Department works with other libraries to obtain materials we can't access directly. The ILLiad system includes a form for requesting standards. It is important to provide as much information about the standard as you can identify, including the title, the number, the year of adoption and the publishing organization. Standards can be difficult to obtain.
Many major technical standards can be found using these three databases:
Many of our standards can be found by title or standard number, some are harder to find. Please contact me if you can't find the standard you need.
If Interlibrary Loan is unable to obtain the standard you need, talk to your faculty member and ask them to place an order request to Heather Perrone. Because of the high cost of acquiring technical standards, and the strict copyright and licensing restrictions, Fogler will only order them at the request of faculty members.
