Standards Collection

Standards Collection at the National Library Board

The Standards Collection at the Lee Kong Chian Reference Library at Level 7 of the National Library Building located at Victoria Street. The Collection is available from Monday to Sunday, 10:00am to 8:30pm (except public holidays).

Our comprehensive Standards Collection can be accessed for free at the National Library Building without having to sign up as a member. Users can also make use of NLB’s business, science and technology information resources to complement their standards research.

All the standards are strictly for reference only. They include major international standards like ISO and IEC standards; Singapore Standards; and industry and consortia standards such as ASTM American Society for Testing and Materials.

Along with the move to digitisation, users of the standards can browse the catalogue and related information. This enables more efficient information search, which includes assisted search enquiry for specific countries, products or subjects. Information sessions and talks on relevant standards for certain industry sectors will be organised.
