Search tips

Include a space between the publisher and the document number.
ASTM D1250” NOT “ASTMD1250”

If you’re not sure of the publisher or acronym, enter the document number only.
e.g: “650” “9000” “B31.3”

Leave off the edition dates in document numbers.
e.g: “IEEE 802.3” NOTIEEE 802.3-2000”

Use a minus sign (-) in place of “NOT”.
e.g: ASTM steel -stainless results in documents mentioning ASTM and steel but NOT stainless.

Use quotes (" ") to find an exact phrase.
e.g: “plastic pressure vessels” only returns results matching that entire phrase.

Check the publisher’s acronym. A misspelling may give incorrect results.

Broaden your search by searching for something more general.
e.g: “pump standards” instead of “centrifugal high-flow pump standards”

Narrow your search by searching for a unique combination of words from the title.
e.g: “hardened titanium tool steel” or “oilfield gas valve corrosion”

Include a combination of the publisher name, acronym, keywords, author, etc.
e.g: “ASTM tool steel”
