How to Order Standards

The Texas A&M University Libraries use SAI Global Standards to order standards that are not already available in the libraries or in other online databases. Use the tabs above to access full-text standards of ASTM, ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Codes, API, and IEEE.


Standards Ordering Policy

This policy is for standards ordered from the SAI Global Standards database.


Standards requests will be filled if:
  • The requestor is affiliated with TAMU College Station, Galveston, or Qatar. 
  • The standard is required for instruction or research (unfunded research). 
  • In the case where the standard is required for a course, the standard will be ordered and placed in Course Reserves.
  • In the case where the standard(s) is needed for research, the TAMU/TAMUG/TAMUQ professor, researcher, or graduate student must request the standard.  External co-researchers' requests will not be filled.

Additional Information: 

  • In order to ensure that the standards funds are distributed fairly, orders per person or lab are limited to $1000/year. 
  • Only one copy of a standard will be ordered per person or lab. 
  • Professors and researchers are expected to use their grant money to pay for their standards before they request standards from the TAMU Libraries. 
  • Undergraduate requests will be handled on a case-by-case basis.  Requests to support senior projects will generally be approved. 
  • Whenever possible, electronic versions of standards will be ordered vs. print
  • In general, orders for draft, cancelled, and superseded standards will not be filled.  The requestor will be contacted to verify the order.
