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.
Please Note: Duke University 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 Document Delivery (see instructions below). If you are affiliated with Duke Medical Center, please contact Melanie Sturgeon (email@example.com) for assistance.
