Information Assistance

If you need assistance determining whether the library has access to a specific standard, please call the Library of Engineering & Science reference desk at 765-494-0831. You may also use the Libraries' Ask A Librarian service.

Specific standards not owned by Purdue may be requested via the Library of Engineering & Science's Purchase Request


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.
