ANSI University Outreach Program

"As the U.S. member body of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), ANSI has been authorized to provide, upon request, complimentary access for students and faculty to selected standards currently available in the ISO collection.  Certain standards from the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) may also be made available upon request. These collections are comprised of nearly 20,000 standards, which can be made available to U.S. faculty and students in all disciplines in institutions of higher learning throughout the United States."

Important Note: Requests for standards are only accepted by FACULTY.

3. Faculty can then distribute the access to their students, including the licensing agreement.
