When you only have a standard number, a standard name, or a general idea of the subject matter, you'll need to identify the volume in which it was published. This is done by searching the ASTM website http://www.astm.org/Standard/index.shtml.
This site can be searched by standard name, standard number or keyword subject/topic.  In addition to information about availability and cost for purchase (often high), there is historic information as well as the “Book of Standards” volume number
         Example:  A514 / A514M - 05(2009) Standard Specification for High-Yield-Strength…. Welding
Active Standard … Book of Standards Volume: 01.04
Once the Volume is identified, you'll need to determine if SMU Libraries owns the volume for the year or years you're seeking.
