2. COLLECTIONS
            A. 2009 ANNUAL BOOK OF ASTM STANDARDS - PRINT AND ONLINE
The Fogler Library Science & Engineering Center has received the 2009 ASTM Standards in both print and online formats. ASTM International develops international standards for materials, products, systems and services used in construction, manufacturing and transportation. The 80+ volume Annual Book of ASTM Standards contains all of ASTM's 12,000+ active standards. The print standards can be found in their usual location in the Science & Engineering Center's reference collection with call number TA401 .A653. The online standards can be accessed at the Patents & Trademarks Depository Library workstation, also located in the Science & Engineering Center. Due to our license agreement, this is the only way that we are able to offer the online standards, but users may download and save or email PDFs of standards from this workstation. Faculty members seeking copies of selected 2009 ASTM standards may contact Martin Wallace at 581-1678 or <martin.wallace@umit.maine.edu> with the titles and/or standard numbers and he will download and email PDFs requested.
