Access technical standards during access restrictions

You need to read a standard for your work. The Library is here to help!


At CERN, many projects imply the use of national and international standards. CERN Library maintains a collection of more than 13,000 standards available on CDS for the CERN community. 

In addition to the collection available on CDS, CERN has access to a large collection of IEEE standards, available on the IEEE Xplore platform as well as many standards and specifications in Electronics.

If you need a standard which is not available at CERN, the Library can acquire it on your behalf. Please fill this form (you will need to provide a budget code). 

The standardization community has worked together to make standards useful for the COVID-19-related research freely available, the list of those standards is available on the SNV website (Swiss Association for Standardization), as well as on IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) and ISO (International Standardization Organization) websites.
