Standards are detailed documents that may be rules, testing methods, definitions, recommended practices, and specifications that promote uniformity for engineering design, industrial practices, and terminology, etc.
The Perkins Libraries collect very few standards. We order standards on demand, free of charge for the Duke community. If you are affiliated with Duke University, you can request a standard(s) using Perkins Document Delivery.
Industry Standards Databases
- IEEExplore (full text access to IEEE standards) - Duke only
- TechStreet (use this site to identify standard(s) needed.)
To request a standard, search the Techstreet.com link to identify the standard needed; copy and paste the link to standard to the Document Delivery form (request as either article or book.) Document Delivery staff will contact you when standard is ready for pickup at Perkins Circulation Desk. We can not provide PDFs of standards, standards are only available in print.
If you have any questions about standards, how to request standards, etc. please contact Linda Martinez (bookworm@duke) or Teddy Gray (email@example.com)
