Finding British Standards
What are British Standards?
• “Standards are a tried and tested way to work more efficiently and
effectively. They help organizations to improve their performance, reduce
their risk and help them be more sustainable” *
• “Standards provide the knowledge that organizations need to succeed,
and deliver it in concentrated form. They can offer a set of powerful tools
to make your organization more innovative and productive” *
• “Standards define best practice in many different areas. They’re put
together by groups of experts [industry experts, consumers, research
organizations, government departments etc] and come in a number of
different kinds, from a set of definitions to a series of strict rules” *
• “Standards are agreed ways of doing something, written down as a set of
precise criteria so they can be used as rules, guidelines or definitions” *
*All definitions are from http://www.bsigroup.com/en-GB/standards/
How to find a British Standard
The Library at Middlesex
University subscribes to British
Standards Online (BSOL).
This guide explains how you
can use BSOL to locate and
access the standards that you
require for your work or study.
British Standards Online (BSOL) is:
• A database of c50,000 British and adopted European
and international standards.
• Middlesex University has access to the full text of up to
150 selected standards (our collection). These have
been chosen by your lecturers.
• Search BSOL to find what standards are available.
• If we don’t have access to the full text of a Standard
that you require, you can ask for it to be added to our
subscription or request it through our Inter Library Loan
service (details later on).
.
Choose ‘Databases’ from the list.
To access BSOL:
myUniHub > MyStudy > MyLibrary > Databases
You can now see a list of databases that we
subscribe to.
Our databases generally provide access to journal articles, but may also contain
other types of information such as book chapters, reports etc. Ohers provide
access to specific collections such as newspapers or Standards e.g. BSOL.
To find BSOL either
scroll down the list or
click on the letter ‘B’.
Click on ‘British
Standards Online’ to
access the database.
You will now see this page
Click here to access BSOL, however it is advisable to have a look at
the instructions below first as these explain how to read a Standard
online or download it to your own device (read offline).
You are now in BSOL
If you want to find Standards
on a particular subject, enter
your search terms here e.g.
‘project management’ and
click on the search icon.
Your search results are displayed
This Standard is part of
our subscription
(collection), so can be
accessed as a full-text
document. More on next
page…..
This Standard is not in our
subscription (collection). If
required we can usually add
it to our collection or you
can request a copy using
our Inter Library Loan
service. More later.
Click on title to get more information…
…..then click on ‘Download
PDF’ to read the full
document. Remember to
read these instructions first
as you are required to use
‘File Open’ plugin:
https://libguides.mdx.ac.uk/
BSOL/offline
You can also
download the
PDF from
here.
To read the Standard online either….
…..click on the
symbol to the right
of the screen or
click on the title and
then ‘Quick View’.
If you know exactly which standard you want….
....enter the details into the search
box and click on ‘Search’ e.g.
BS6079 or 6079....
....and select the Standard
you want from the list of
search results.
If the Standard you require is not in our
subscription i.e. no full text access……
• We can usually add it to our collection. Email requests to Vanessa
Hill v.hill@mdx.ac.uk
• Please do not click on the ‘Send a request to your account admin’
link (see next slide) to request access.
• If our Collection is full, then Standards can be requested from the
British Library using our Inter Library Loan Service:
myUniHub > MyStudy > MyLibrary > Inter Library Loans
This Standard is not in our subscription
If you would like access
to this Standard then see
previous slide for details
of how to request
access. Please DO NOT
click on this link.
To see a list of the Standards in our collection i.e. those
which are currently available as full text documents....
....click on link below ‘My
Subscription’ on the
‘Home’ page....
....you will then see a list of the
Standards which we have
selected for full-text access.
Need further help?

Finding British Standards

  • 2. What are British Standards? • “Standards are a tried and tested way to work more efficiently and effectively. They help organizations to improve their performance, reduce their risk and help them be more sustainable” * • “Standards provide the knowledge that organizations need to succeed, and deliver it in concentrated form. They can offer a set of powerful tools to make your organization more innovative and productive” * • “Standards define best practice in many different areas. They’re put together by groups of experts [industry experts, consumers, research organizations, government departments etc] and come in a number of different kinds, from a set of definitions to a series of strict rules” * • “Standards are agreed ways of doing something, written down as a set of precise criteria so they can be used as rules, guidelines or definitions” * *All definitions are from http://www.bsigroup.com/en-GB/standards/
