Changes to Australian Standards Online
From 1 August 2021 there will be two changes to accessing Australian Standards Online through Techstreet on the TAFE Queensland Libraries website.
Change 1 – Create a Techstreet account
Standards can then be read in the browser using the Techstreet online view.
Change 2 – Downloading and printing Australian Standards
To download and print from Australian Standards Online from your personal devices you will need to install FileOpen software.
FileOpen will also be required to download and print Standards from a classroom computer.
All educational network computers will have FileOpen installed on the PCs. TAFE Queensland staff can install FileOpen on the administration computers. Click on the Start button on the bottom left of your computer screen and type in the word “Software”, then left click on the Software Centre icon.
