New access to standards: no more BS!

Due to a steep and sudden increase in its subscription price, the British Standards Online database has become unaffordable and will cease to be available via DIT from Monday 29th November.

However, the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) database will shortly be available, initially on a free trial basis, within the next few days. NSAI hosts a large database of Irish Standards, including all those required by the European Union. NSAI is also the Irish affiliate of the International Standards Organisation (ISO) and it is hoped that access to all ISO standards will be included.

Students and members of staff who wish to know more can "watch this space" to learn about the NSAI trial subscription, or contact the library to discuss training or information needs arising from this transition.
