Printing Australian Standards

Library staff can help you to download and print your Australian Standards

Before printing, check with your teacher:

  • if any pages should be printed in colour
  • if your standard was recently updated, which version do you need for your exams

Printing service permission slip

If you use a printing service such as Office Works, you will need to get a signed permission slip from the library. This slip advises the printing service that it's legally OK for them to print you a single copy for study purposes.
