These are the standards collections held at UCSD Library (sorry, we don't have ISO). Remote access to the online standards collections is restricted to UCSD faculty, staff and students; VPN is required. Visitors can access the databases from the public infostation computers in the library.
ASTM Compass, which includes access to all of the ASTM standards (plus a few ISO and UOP standards), as well as their journals and symposia papers. Search by keyword or designation, or browse by topic/sub-topic. The subscription is partly paid with the Library’s Engineering 25th Anniversary endowment, established by SDG&E (Sempra).
Do not use the regular www.astm.org website or Google to search for your standard, as you may be prompted to pay. If you don't see an option on the ASTM page to access the standard through Compass, then go to that page directly.
Through IEEE Xplore, you can search and retrieve the IEEE standards, along with selected AIEE and ANSI standards related to electrical & computer engineering. Start with the Standards link in the left column on the IEEE site. You can search or browse by number or keyword/topic.
