IHS Standards Expert: FAQs

This guide will help you navigate the IHS Standards Expert platform and access digital standards through the library.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the shopping cart beside a standard mean?  Why can't I access those standards?

Standards with a shopping cart beside them in the IHS Engineering Workbench platform are standards which are not currently subscribed to by the Reg Erhardt Library.  To view only standards within our subscription, be sure that the "Search My Subscriptions only" checkbox is selected when using the Advanced Query search, or click on My Subscriptions in the  search results page.


I see a standard I want, but we currently don't subscribe to it.  How can I get access that standard?

To request that our library purchase access to a standard not a part of our current subscription package, please contact Alison Hart to indicate your request.


Can I print/save the standards?

Patrons are permitted (within standard fair use copyright restrictions) to print or save a copy of the standards available in the IHS Standards Expert Platform, unless otherwise restricted by the embedded digital rights management.  If permitted, the print and save functions available in Adobe Reader will appear as follows:   If printing or copying are restricted, these icons will be greyed out and this function will not be available.
