Engineering Standards & Technical Papers

Standards and Techical Papers can be accessed in print at the Grainger Engineering Library

Engineering Standards

Many older editions of engineering standards are available in print at the Grainger Engineering Library. Current ANSI-approved engineering standards are purchased in most cases, depending on cost. ISO standards, which tend to be very expensive and proprietary, are typically only purchased by request from UIUC faculty. Superseded standards are not purchased and should be requested through Interlibrary Loan. Please email enginlib@illinois.edu with questions. Standards organizations typically have very strict license agreements and therefore, most standards are purchased in print format only.
