How to Understand the Numbering System for SAE Technical Papers
Technical Papers have one of two numbering formats:
SAE papers can be published in SAE Special Publications, in SAE Proceedings, in the SAE Transactions, and in various SAE Journals.
"SP" = Special Publications - a collection of Technical Papers presented at a given session in one conference.
"HS" = Handbook Supplement
"P" = Proceedings
"PT" = Progress in Technology
Our holdings for SAE Technical Papers:
Kettering has access to 1906→present for Technical Papers in SAE Mobilus.
See a librarian at any point in the SAE paper finding process if you have any trouble. It's complicated and we're here to help.

Aerospace Material specifications
All SAE Standards begin with letters. Ground Vehicle Standards start with J; Aerospace Standards start with AS, AMS, AIR and ARP. Standards often have various iterations, so be aware of which version you need.
We have the SAE Handbook in print and on CD-ROM and it contains the SAE Ground Vehicle Standards. These are also called J-Reports because the standard numbers begin with J. For example:
Our holdings for Ground Vehicle Standards:
1905-present—The SAE Digital Library indexes all published Standards. No full text access is available, but you can locate the paper number.
1935-2003—Physical books on the shelves in the form of the SAE Handbook, call number TL 151 .S62
2008-2010 — CD-ROM version of the SAE Handbook, available from the Reference Librarians at the Information Desk (includes most Standards through 1905-2010)
We have a very limited number of Aerospace Standards in physical form. They are indexed in the SAE Digital Library, but not in Kettering's catalog. The standards we have are listed below. They are located in two different books in the Reference section.
