Using British Standards Online (BSOL) http:// / study / library

British Standards Online (BSOL) is: • A database of 50,000 British and adopted European and international standards. • Standards are an agreed, often legally binding level of quality or way of doing something and are created by experts. • Middlesex University has access to the full text of up to 100 selected standards (our collection). These have been chosen by your lecturers. • Search BSOL to find what standards are available. If we don’t have access to the full text, you can request them through our Inter Library Loan service.

To start using BSOL.... myUniHub > My Study > My Library Choose ‘Databases’ from the list.

This is our list of databases Initially you will be taken to ‘Databases : A’ ie. all the databases beginning with the letter ‘A’ These databases usually provide access to journal articles, but many also contain book chapters, conference proceedings, Standards, reports etc. Some contain specific collections such as newspapers or British Standards eg. BSOL.

It is important to set the Library Cookie Set the Library Cookie on your own computer/laptop to improve access to available full-text articles, papers/, and books etc. Simply click on ‘Middlesex University Cookie’

Click on the letter ‘B’ to find BSOL.... ….then click on ‘British Standards Online (BSOL)… ….finally click on ‘Enter Database here’ to access BSOL.

You should access BSOL straight away, but if you see this.... ….click on ‘Go to the Middlesex University login page’.... ….then use your computer network/UniHub username and password to login in.
