Q. Does Lauinger have access to ISO standards?

Does Lauinger have access to ISO standards?

Answer

GU does not have an Engineering department, which means we don't have the resources to support it.
 
The good news is that the Library of Congress does have some of the ISO but you have to go in person to the Science and Tech Reading Room to pay to print the standard out.
http://www.loc.gov/rr/scitech/trs/trsstandards.html
 
Library of Congress states, "the Library of Congress does not have every ISO standard. As an international organization, ISO is not required to deposit their standards.  The older ones we have come in primarily via exchange or gift.  Occasionally, we have received some more current standards through deposit because ISO issued a standard with a partner standard issuing organization (IEEE for example) that is required to deposit.  We have also purchased about a couple of dozen over the years.  Some have also been cataloged and put in the general collections, but that was many years ago. Basically, it would be a good idea for the student to contact our Science/Tech Ask a Librarian to see if we had the standard before coming."
 
If you are not in DC, some academic libraries with an engineering department might have some.  Or contact your closest State University. 
 
If you can't get a Standard you can try the GU InterLibrary Loan (ILL) service or you might have to buy it from ISO themselves
 
Do you really need the full text of the ISO Standard; you can just refer/cite the ISO standard in your work?
 
ANSI university outreach program through their education division.  https://www.ansi.org. provides SOME standards for free
