To Find ASTM Standards, search the ASTM database for active standards.  You may search by keyword or interest area. 

  • Once you find the standard you are looking, copy down the title and the standard #.  The standard # is listed after ASTM in the title;  ex. D5000-05.
  • Click on the title of the standard.  This will direct you to a page listing the volume the standard is in.
    • The Annual Book of ASTM Standards is divided into 15 volumes and multiple sections.
    • The standards on the ASTM site are the active or updated standards. 
  • After you have clicked on the standard, click on the number next to "Book of Standards Volume". 
    The view contents information on the right hand side bar will indicate which pages the standard is on for the corresponding volume year.

Stony Brook University does not have a current subscription to ASTM standards in print or online.  We have older volumes in print in the library.  To view the available volumes and years, go to the SBU Libraries homepage and click on the CATALOG link on the top left Search box. On the search box on the next page, change the KEYWORD option to TITLE and type in "Annual Book of ASTM Standards".  Click "Retrieve Catalog Item" and then click on the links next to HOLDING LOCATION to view our holdings. 

We have many volumes and sections from 1992 and select volumes until 2004.  We do not have all volumes and sections so make sure you have the volume and section # of the book containing your standard.  Also, check the latest date of the standard to make sure you are viewing the active version of the standard.  If we do not have the standard you are looking for in print, Stony Brook faculty, staff, and students may request standards via Interlibrary Loan.
