ASHRAE's 97 standards and 11 guidelines are now available on two CDs, condensed from four 4-inch binders. "The CD provides the convenience of having the latest standards and guidelines from ASHRAE in one place and the assurance of knowing that updates to any of the documents are just a click away," Steve Comstock, ASHRAE publisher, said. The CD supports the society's strategic goal of developing products that meet the needs of ASHRAE members and others. The standards and guidelines are bookmarked, allowing for quick navigation to points of interest. Custom searching is available within each document. Users will have access to updates and any new standards or guidelines through their first year of purchase via a link to a dedicated Standards CD update page on After a year, users must renew their subscription to maintain access. Users will be notified of updates via mail from ASHRAE. The CD will be updated twice a year, prior to ASHRAE's bi-annual meetings.
