Popular Standards Bodies

Cambridge University subscribes to a number of different standards organisations. Below is a series of the most popular organisations and the approved links to their databases of standards.

Search Strategy Tips

Don't be surprised if locating standards proves to be difficult. Databases for locating standards often only have a title for you to search by keyword.

Standards are regularly updated (usually) and the version that you want might depend on your specific information needs. Be prepared to think about alternative terms - is it a surge protector or a surge suppressor? Ask a librarian for help!

Search Terms

To locate a standard, the following details will prove useful:

  •     Name of the publishing organization (often referred to as the SDO - Standards Developing Organization)
  •     Standard number
  •     Title
  •     Subject
