A guide to finding technical standards and specifications.

Finding Canadian Standards

The TMU Library receives some standards, test methods, and specifications published by the Canadian General Standards Board (CGSB). For an index to this collection use the Canadian General Standards Board catalogue or the CGSB Electronic Catalogue (updated quarterly). The index lists current standards, test methods, and specifications by standard number as well as by subject. Cross references for any Canadian standard that has dual designation with other standards, including ASTM, ISO, and ANSI, are included.

CSA Standards

The Library maintains a set of the most frequently used CSA standards which are available via the TechStreet service and can be searched by title in the Library catalogue.
