In its Patents and Standards Reading Room, TIB has large collections of standards issued by German (e.g. AD, BAZ, DVGW, FGSV, VDE, ZVDH), international (ISO, ITU) and foreign (ASTM, JIS, SIA) institutions.

Members of Leibniz Universität Hannover may use the Nautos database featuring full-text access to VDI guidelines and DIN standards (exception: standards labelled VDE).

Non-members of Leibniz Universität Hannover can make or order copies of VDI guidelines on special VDI photocopy paper. An extra fee of € 0.65 per page is charged for this service.

DIN standards can be viewed on site. However, copies may not be made.  

As a rule, individual standards are not listed in the TIB portal. For this reason, when ordering standards, please select the option "Order without search" and enter all available details in the order form.
