ANSI University Outreach Program

Faculty interested in getting copies of ISO or IEC Standards for use in the classroom can now get copies for students via the ANSI University Outreach Program.

  1. Faculty select specific ISO or IEC standards and complete and return the University Outreach Pilot Project enrollment form.
  2. ANSI sends an e-mail to the faculty member with a unique URL and password for their students to access the standards online and ANSI provides faculty with the University Outreach Pilot Project License Agreement for distribution to all students given access to the free standards.
  3. Faculty distribute URLs, passwords and the License Agreement to their students.
  4. Faculty contacts ANSI with any additional requests for resources.
  5. As they become available, ANSI will contact faculty with additional teaching resources.
  6. At the end of the semester faculty participate in a brief evaluation of the pilot.

IHS Demand Driven Standards

Need an industry standard for your research, teaching, or a project?  The IHS Standards Expert database searches about 1.6 million standards from 370 technical societies worldwide.

The UC Davis Library will now purchase print copies of standards for UC Davis faculty, students, and staff for the library’s collection and make them available to you.

  • There is no charge to the requester.

  • Delivery times can vary, but should take 7 working days or fewer.

  • You will be notified when the standard is available for use.

Please keep in mind that we already provide full-text online standards from ASTM, IEEEASCE, and ASABE and also have current print editions from a handful of other societies and standards bodies.  If you aren’t sure if we already have access to a standard, please feel free to contact Melinda M. Livas (

Searching and ordering through the IHS Standards Expert database does require registration. You are not required to request standards through the IHS interface and/or if you happen to already know what standard you need, you can request it by contacting Melinda M. Livas (
