Find Standards

   OSU holds subscriptions to a very limited number of standards.  In addition to ASTM Standards and AWS Standards, we also have access to some standards through IEEE Xplore and ASABE Technical Library.  Furthermore, some standards can be found through the Knovel Database.  A complete list of available standards can be found at OSU Library subscriptions to Standards,

 Under limited and specific circumstances, if OSU does not hold a subscription for a standard, our Interlibrary Loan Service will order and pay for acquisition.

  The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Incorporated by Reference (IBR) Portal provides free access to standards that have been incorporated by reference in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (read-only format). Information about ANSI IBR.

Off-campus Access

There are several ways to access licensed resources from off-campus by authenticating with your name.# and password:

  • Use the off-campus sign in through the library website for the most reliable way to access licensed resources from off-campus. Or, you can use the off-campus sign in directly in the OSU library catalog. You should only need to sign in once per session.

  • You can add the OSU Libraries' Bookmarklet to your browser, which you can use to authenticate when viewing an article or book on a publisher/vendor site. Information on using a Bookmarklet is here.

  • The Zotero browser plugin will autoproxy, providing you authenticated access to subscription materials. Information on installing and setting up Zotero can be found here.  

  • Many publishers/vendors permit access directly from their website with OSU authentication. If the library subscribes to a resource and if the publisher/vendor provides direct access, you can use proxy authentication to access the resource. Place this string at the beginning of the vendor’s URL:[enter vendor’s URL here]. Example:

Please note that VPN authentication will not provide authentication for most library resources.
