This database searches the title, standard number and organization of the paper standards, which are part of the collection in the Engineering Library.
The ANSI standards are shelved in the Siegesmund Engineering Library's Standards area, located in the basement next to the Technical Reports collection. They are shelved alphabetically by issuing organization and then numerically.
The British Standards are located in the Hicks Repository. Ask for them by call number - 620.03 B77 and the specific British Standard number.
