Engineering standards are documentation of engineering practices.  These include rules, techniques, and conditions for engineering design, industrial practices, units of measurement, terminology, etc. Committees, affiliated with societies or organizations, and made up of specialists from universities and industry write standards. All design engineers rely on standards for guidance and to give authority to their work.

Standards can be mandatory or voluntary. Think of standards as rules for uniformity, size, quality, performance, shape, definition and testing methodology of manufactured products.

Washington University Libraries does not actively maintain a standards collection. If you need a standard, contact Lauren Todd to order the requested standard.
