The Construction Information Service database provides access to building regulations, technical guides, reports, briefings, industry news and more.

This database has recently moved to a new platform. After authenticating with your QUB credentials, please complete the consent form for your details to be shared with the supplier.

  1. Find the Construction Information Service on the library catalogue (you may be asked to sign in with your QUB ID card details)
  2. Click on the “Full text through QConnect” link
  3. On the next page, click the QConnect button 
  4. If requested, complete the consent form for your details to be shared with the supplier and click Accept
  5. You will be taken to the IHS Markit Main Menu screen. Select The Construction Information Service - CIS from the available services.


Please note: British Standards are listed in the Construction Information Service database, but the documents are not included. You can access these standards via the British Standards Online database.
