The library database Techstreet contains several ANSI, ISO, ASSE, BSO, and ASTM standards. This is where you will locate the following heavily used industry standards:

  • ISO 45001
  • ANSI Z10

We do NOT have all the standards possible; only a small collection of key standards as requested by faculty.

 

Important: In order to view the documents downloaded from the Techstreet database, you must use Adobe Acrobat Reader and download and install the FileOpen plugin. This will likely require restarting your computer and adjusting some settings in your web browser. Firefox or Chrome browsers recommended. We encourage you to click on this link to test if your machine is correctly configured to view secure PDFs.

Installing and troubleshooting the FileOpen plugin

 

Step One: Please click on this link to test if your machine is correctly configured to view secure PDFs.

Did it work?

Yes! You are all set and ready to download your needed standard documents.

No? Then go to step Two.

 

Step Two: You must download the Adobe FileOpen plugin to be able to open and read standards documents downloaded from Techstreet.

If you do not download and install FileOpen, the PDF documents will be blank.

There is a link available here or on the Techstreet homepage.

After installing, a computer restart is recommended. Firefox and Chrome browsers are recommended.

Did it work?

Yes! You are all set and ready to download your needed standard documents.

No? Then go to step Three.

 

Step Three: Further Troubleshooting Steps

 

Try right clicking on the document, download it, then opening it in Adobe Acrobat Reader.

 

You will also likely need to configure your browser to use Adobe Reader rather than its built-in PDF reader. Here are instructions on how to do that:

 

 

Are you getting the below message?

Error message that reads "Failed to load PDF document"

If you encounter this error message:

  • you likely need to either reinstall the FileOpen plugin or
  • configure your browser to use Adobe Reader rather than its built-in PDF reader or
  • you clicked to download the epub or mobi file and not the pdf file (see below)

 

Techstreet offers several help pages on FileOpen:

 

 

Did it work?

There are several different ways you can easily access the standards available through our Techstreet subscription.

 

On the Techstreet home page, we recommend scrolling down just a bit and scanning the Popular Documents section on the right side of the screen to see if your needed industry standard is listed there.

Standard not available?

First, don't forget that EKU Libraries also subscribes to the National Fire Codes Online database. If you need an NFPA Code, you will use that database to access those specific fire industry codes.

If you need a standard that is NOT available in Techstreet or the National Fire Codes Online database, please login to your Library Express account and submit a Request for a "Standards Document" and someone will contact you about whether or not we are able to obtain it for you by adding it to the Techstreet subscription.

 

Please include as many details as you can with your request in relation to why you need the standard.
