IEEE or the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers is an organization for engineers. It publishes a large number of journals and trade magazines as well as creates and publishes standards. The UMD library has access to all current and some historical IEEE standards (and joint standards).
To access the standards, go to the IEEE Xplore through the UMD Library. Type in the keywords or a standard number. It also can also save time if you go further down the page and under Content Type, click on the Standards box. This will allow you to limit something to just standards and not articles or conference preoceedings about a standard. You must be a current student, faculty, or staff to access this material when you are not in the library.
