Barwon Health Library Service: Australian Standards

Evidence for Excellence

Changes to Australian Standards Access

As from the 1st of May there has been a new requirement to comply with copyright management a FileOpen plugin is required on computers to access the standards,  this is proving to be problematic on the thin client environment but the plug-in can be downloaded to the fat-client (computers with the bigger c-drive box)
  • FileOpen plugin - https://plugin.fileopen.com/all.aspx
  • If this plugin has not yet been downloaded to your fat client computer then log a call with IT helpdesk.
  • once installed, download the standard from the webpage, open adobe reader software and then open the standard using the File -> Open commands in Adobe

Please contact the library for more information or assistance
