Materials : CSI Masterformat

Welcome to the guide to Materials Research at Auburn University. The Library of Architecture, Design and Construction is home to a Materials Lab. We collect and make available current, innovative, and sustainable building materials samples.

Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) MasterFormat Divisitions

CSI MasterFormat is the standard for organizing construction specifications of commercial and institutional building projects in the U.S. and Canada. It works much like the Library of Congress (LC) classification system that we use to organize our books in the library.

MasterFormat is a product of the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and Construction Specifications Canada.

The Materials Lab uses the current MasterFormat system with 50 Divisions.
