UConn library owns a physical set of the 2016 standards. They are located on the 2nd floor of the library in the Technology section. We also have a set of the 2010 and 2003 Standards. The ASTM Standards are located at call number TA401.A653. Just look for the shelf labeled TA401, and there they are!
For example, if you are looking for standard C1424, "Standard Test Method for Monotonic Compressive Strength of Advanced Ceramics at Ambient Temperature," you need to determine what volume that standard is located in. To do this, search in Google for ASTM C1424, this will bring you to the ASTM webpage for that Standard. Listed on that page, you will find the corresponding book volume in which the standard is located, in this case, Book of Standards volume 15.01.
Although there are many standards, hopefully you will quickly find the information you are looking for and get to work! You can always scan the standard to PDF and e-mail it to yourself at one of the libraries many scanners. You could also photocopy it.
Good luck with your research! If you need a standard from a year the library does not own, you can request it through interlibrary loan. Login to MyILLIAD, and fill out the information about the standard you need. You should receive a PDF scan by e-mail within about three days.
