An engineering standard is a document that has been developed and established within the consensus principles of the organization and which meets the requirements of procedures and regulations. Full consensus standards are developed with the participation of all parties who have a stake in the standards’ development and/or use.
ASCE standards promote safety, reliability, productivity, and efficiency.
Engineering standards can be found by searching the library's online catalog. Here is the URL for advanced search: http://vmi.worldcat.org/advancedsearch
You can also search the ASCE official web site under the category of "Books & Standards" to find an engineering standard. Once you have the title, standard number and date of publication, you can search the library's catalog. If Preston Library does not own the standard, then you can request an Interlibrary Loan (ILL).
