Standards & Codes: Standards @ UCSD

Standards in the Library Catalog

There are a few standards from other organizations in the library collection, as well as books about applying or using a particular standard (for example, ISO 9001). Search Roger for the organization and standard number. For example:

Consult the organization's website to make sure the standard you do find in Roger hasn't been superseded.

Standards Available at UCSD

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. Visitors can access the databases from the public infostation computers in the library.

UCSD has access to the ASTM's Digital Library via 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.  Do not use the regular website or Google to search for your standard, as you may be prompted to pay.

The subscription is partly paid with the Library’s Engineering 25th Anniversary endowment, established by SDG&E (Sempra).


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.
