Changes to SAI Global

30/04/2021 - 12:58pm

What is happening?

SAI Global has introduced a new way of accessing standards.

When is this happening?

The new access arrangements begin on 30 April 2021.

What do I need to do?

  • Install two free plug-ins, FileOpen and Adobe Reader before content can be viewed.
  • You will be prompted to download the plug-in when you first open a standard.
  • Contact UNSW IT if you have difficulties with downloading these plug-ins.

What is important for me to know?

  • You cannot share standards that you download, as this contravenes UNSW Library's licence agreement with SAI Global.
  • Multiple downloads of standards are permitted, enabling individuals to have a personal copy.
  • Sessions last for 30 minutes and the Library has a five concurrent user licence.
  • When you have finished, log out so that others can access the resource.
