Subject Guide for Standards

Most standards are not listed in the Chinook catalog. Library staff will be happy to help you locate standards. Please ask for help at the Engineering Library Reference Desk or contact us by phone or email.

 

If the library does not own a standard needed by members of the university community, it may be able to purchase a copy.

 

Form to suggest the purchase of a standard.

You will need your BuffOne Card.
