Virtual Volumes Available through Compass



Cicely Enright

ASTM International is happy to announce that, beginning this fall, you’ll access your free and purchased online volumes of the Annual Book of ASTM Standards through ASTM Compass®.

Rest assured that your current subscription and login will be the same. When you sign in to MyASTM, you’ll click on the "Digital Subscriptions" link and be taken directly to your volume(s) on Compass. Just as before, you’ll be able to download PDFs of the standards you need or want, but you’ll also be able to do more.

On the Compass platform, your online volume subscription includes:

  • Redlines, with color-coded highlighting of previous versions of standards so you can easily compare and spot changes (you can choose whichever versions you wish to compare with this tool);
  • Historical and withdrawn standards; and
  • The ability to bookmark standards and other technical documents for easy reference.

Subscription access through Compass will also allow you to use other tools like personal annotations to better serve your needs in using and applying of standards.

As before, you can filter the standards in your volume(s) by active, historical, or withdrawn standards. (The filter appears in a dropdown menu.)

If you have any questions or comments, please email our inside sales and support team, or call +1.877.909.ASTM.
