Engineering Standards

A guide to finding design and construction/manufacturing standards for engineering students.

Building standards

The University Libraries' subscription to McGraw-Hill's Access Engineering database includes a number of handbooks relevant to building construction such as The 2015 International Building Code Illustrated Handbook. 

Some construction standards reference books are also available in print in the Campbell Library Reference Collection. 

ASCE standards

ASCE, the American Society of Civil Engineers, sets engineering standards for all areas of civil engineering. 

Rowan University Libraries subscribes to the ASCE Library. Use the Standards page to search by topic or standard number. When you find the standard you need, click on the Get it! button to access the full text, if available.
