Central portal for the main engineering resources available through the Purdue Libraries

Information Assistance

If you need assistance determining whether the library has access to a specific standard, please call the Libraries' Information Desk at 494-2873. You may also use the Libraries' Ask A Librarian service.

Finding Standards Online

Purdue's Print Standard Collection

In addition to our online standards subscription, we also have a collection of standards in print format.   These are typically items unavailable online, or too expensive for us to purchase online access.  

Our Purdue University Standards Database allows you to search our collection of print standards. 

If you cannot locate a standard you need, you can request we purchase a copy for you.  Indicate in the Notes field that it is a standard to make sure it is routed most efficiently in our system.
