The Library has Standards

By Lesley Wolf

And shouldn’t we all! Your standards may be high or low, but the Library’s standards are of the ASME, ASTM, and BVPC variety. Our recent acquisitions, in PDF format, are: ASME (American Society Mechanical Engineers) and BVPC (Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code) standards on-line through IHS, Inc. Our newest offering, Cyberegs, is an easily accessible database for state and federal regulations complete with live document links to relevant CFR’s (Code of Federal Regulations).

To find the ASME and BVPC Standards from the SLAC home page, go to the Library home page, and click ‘eResources’ on the menu bar. Then choose ‘ll SLAC Databases’ from the menu. For your convenience, the subscription to ASME and BVPC Standards is IP authenticated, so you do not have to log in personally, unless you would like to set up lists. The IHS subscription to ASME and BVPC standards is a single user database, so only one client can be logged on at a time.  For full instructions, see: http://www.slac.stanford.edu/library/eresources/info.htm

SLAC Library also holds the paper version of current ASTM standards on the reference shelf. To check out our complete list of codes, standards and other helpful on-line resources, see: http://www.slac.stanford.edu/library/eresources/slac.htm
