Standards, Codes, & Specifications


Welcome to Finding Engineering Standards!

The majority of our standards are available online via IHS and IEEE Xplore to current faculty, students, and staff.  Please use the Databases tab to see which organizations the library provides access to.

NEW! All users will be required to register for a free account in order to access standards on the IHS platform. ASME BPVC and ESDU will be accessible through the same login credentials.  

Also, some organizations (i.e. AWS, ICC) require users to download and use a free Adobe Acrobat plug-in to view their secure PDF standards.  Once in the database, click on the yellow lock icon yellow lock iconfor more information.

Please Note: International Standards (ISO, IEC, ITU, DIN, etc.) are not collected or purchased by the University of Texas Libraries. Go to the IHS Standards Store to purchase copies of standards from all national or international organizations and many companies.

If you have any questions, please email the engineering librarians or call us at (512) 495-4511.
