Standards request (MIT only)

Please read the following policies before placing a request. This form is for current members of the MIT community only.

Format / Delivery:

If available, we will purchase a copy of the requested standard in print, which you will be able to check out of the library. We will let you know if the standard you have requested is unavailable.


The MIT Libraries will make every effort to obtain the standard you need at no cost to you. However, we do have a limited budget for purchasing standards and they can be expensive. If you need multiple standards or standards with multiple parts, please prioritize your list and let us know which standards are your first choice.


Standards purchases may take 2-3 weeks before the standard is ready to be picked up. Please let us know if you need it more quickly or if you have questions by making a note in the “other information” field. For more information, Ask Us.

*All fields are required unless otherwise noted.
