Standards are indexed in Compendex with controlled vocabulary, allowing for more precise discoverability than keyword searching alone. (…) If a library also subscribes to full text standards through a compatible vendor platform (e.g., ASTM Compass, IEEE Xplore), there is one-click access to full-text documents.
