AIRS STANDARDS

First published in 1973 and now in its 7th edition (7.0 officially being released on April 2nd, 2013), the AIRS Standards underpin and bind together every aspect of I&R and define the direction of all the products and services provided by AIRS. The Standards are the foundation of I&R service delivery and the prime benchmark of quality I&R.

There are 29 Standards, covering every facet of an I&R operation.  

The AIRS Standards and Quality Indicators for Professional Information and Referral are available for free to everyone passionate about quality I&R.
