The University Library's access to SIS standards
Standards are often described as common solutions to recurring problems. They are developed and used in most areas of society. Via the University Library, you have access to a wide range of standards and you can also submit requests for new ones.
What is SIS?
The Swedish Institute for Standards, SIS, is an association that leads the Swedish work to produce standards. The association collaborates with all parts of Swedish society, such as industry, academia and the public sector. SIS is part of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the European Committee for Standardization (CEN).
Standards at JU
The University Library has a SIS subscription that consists of a limited number of standards from SIS, ISO, ASTM International and Svensk Elstandard (SEK). SIS's own standards are often available in both Swedish and English. The standards in the subscription are selected by the library and students and staff are welcome to suggest standards that should be included.
You can search the SIS database yourself on the library's website:
On the SIS website, you will see a list of the standards that are available in the library's subscription right now. You can also search among all standards in SIS in the search box at the top of the page.
If you have questions or would like to request a standard
At the end of the year, the library's SIS subscription is reviewed and standards that are not used will be removed so that new standards can be added. However, there is often room to add standards throughout the year.
Feel free to contact the library if you have requests for new or questions about existing standards:
