Techstreet is a company that provides access to standards and codes from over 100 international standards bodies and publishers. The Library has subscribed to Techstreet Enterprise which allows for the creation of a custom collection of standards based on faculty and student requests and program needs.
If you know the exact standard or code that you need, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request the purchase. See View a Standard below to learn how you will be able to access the standard electronically.
If you want to verify details about the standard before requesting (version, etc.) follow the steps below under Search the Standards Store.

Once the Library has purchased a standard or code, you can access it from the Techstreet Enterprise dashboard. The dashboard is the first page you see when you log in.
