Do you want to teach your class how to use the standards? Concerned about the single user licence?
The good news is the entire class can;
At this point the Lecturer can download a standard onto their device to demonstrate the process or use in class.
The bad news is that only one user can download a standard at any one time. So remember to log out when you are done so the next user can access the database.
Feel free to contact the Library if you would like some help.
Australian Standards are available via our subscription to SAI Global for work and study purposes by current North Metropolitan TAFE students and staff.
Standards are documents setting out specifications, procedures and guidelines. They are designed to ensure products, services and systems are safe, reliable and consistent. State and Commonwealth governments often refer to Australian Standards® (AS) or joint Australian/New Zealand Standards (AS/NZS) in their legislation. They are based on industrial, scientific and consumer experience and are regularly reviewed to ensure they keep pace with new technologies. [Extract from Standards Australia]
