Everything you ever wanted to know about standards

Robert E. Parks

For the last several months we have been dealing with rather specific optical standards subjects. For a complete change this month, we feature a very general and weighty volume (some 575 pages) titled Standards Activities of Organizations in the United States (PB85-106151). This paperbound book [published in 1984 by the National Technical Information Service (NTIS), Springfield, Va. 22161; (703) 487-4650, costing $42.95, plus $3 for handling] lists just about anything anyone would ever want to know about federal, nongovernment, and state standards writing activities.
