Metasearch tools such as DBIS give you the opportunity to search for freely accessible or commercial databases.
Contents: Perinorm allows you, among other things
full-text search for DIN standards without VDE identification,

1. Open Perinorm (via campus computer or VPN).
2. Switch to the English surface (top bar).
3. Enter the document number, e.g. 748 for DIN 748-1 or 690 for DIN ISO 690. a) Simple search mask: Tick the box "Search in document number only" below the search line. b) Advanced search mask: Select the field "Document identifier+" for entry.
4. Submit the search via the "Search" button.
5. You receive a hit list. The current editions of the standards are placed at the top.
6. If the standard you are looking for is available as full text, you will see a blue bordered document symbol with or without a country flag on the left.
7. Click on the symbol. The full text is made available.
