ASTM Standards & Engineering Digital Library is a vast collection of industry-leading standards and technical engineering publications. The Library covers a broad range of engineering disciplines, including aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, environmental, geological, health and safety, industrial, materials science, mechanical, nuclear, petroleum, soil science, and solar engineering.
Four full-text (either PDF or HTML format) products are available for subscription via this offer:
ASTM Standards PLUS- includes 12,900+ standards as well as historical and redlined versions of standards
SEDL (Standards (Basic/Active) + Digital Library) PLUS - includes standards as well as historical and redlined versions of standards and ASTM Manuals, Monographs, Data Series, Symposia Papers, STPs (Special Technical Publications) and 9 Journals
Previously, there were options to purchase only the current standards through a Basic option. As of 2018/19 renewal, this is no longer available.
There are MARC records for the ASTM Digital Library publications, i.e., Manuals, Monographs, Journal Articles, STPs and Data Series. See: https://www.astm.org/DIGITAL_LIBRARY/user_resources.html However, there are no MARC records for ASTM Standards.
