We asked Janet Peattie, Acquisitions Manager from University of Strathclyde why she uses the agreement;
“We originally took the ASTM standards in print form and renewed them every other year, as we could not afford to purchase them on an ongoing basis. They are used principally by staff and students from the Engineering Faculty. The ASTM standards were particularly difficult for students to use in print form so the online version has been very welcome. One of the main advantages is that we have been able to discard the old printed volumes and save substantial space. This was particularly welcome as the updated print volumes appeared throughout the year so we had to keep the old printed set in tandem until they were all superseded by the incoming set.
Purchasing the online version for 3 years outright with the flat fee has saved us a considerable money both in the savings which this deal offers and also through the cancellation of several ASTM journals are available through the ASTM digital library. We now have access to other additional material including ASTM manuals, technical papers and ebooks so it has enabled us to enhance content for our Library users.”
