Library Expands Commitment to Support MnDOT's Workforce
by Marilee Tuite
You might be aware that MnDOT Library offers full sets of books for the P.E. Civil: Transportation exam. We recently added practice materials for the Fundamentals (FE) and Structural (SE) exams. Beyond exam materials, library staff will use inter-library loan to obtain an article or book that isn't in the collection but is needed for a project or professional development. The collection also has several full-text electronic resources that are critical to MnDOT business, such as:
- ASTM DOT Compass Portal for ASTM standards and AASHTO specifications
- ASCE Library for ASCE journals and proceedings
- Minnesota Reflections for historical items, e.g., digitized state highway maps and employee newsletters
In addition to offering print and electronic materials, the library is now the C.O. contact for a bridge-in-a-bag kit (see 43-second video). This kit is one of the resources available to employees who participate in an activity related to MnDOT's STEM program, which aims to encourage the next generation of civil engineers and technicians.

The library space is available for many professional needs. Employees may schedule time in room 174 or use the tables for impromptu meetings. The networked PCs allow working remotely in a calm area. Interviewees can go through questions before an interview for a MnDOT position. The business center, WiFi, public PCs, and daily newspapers are available to all.
There are many ways to contact the library to ask a question or get assistance researching a topic: by phone at 651-366-3791, by e-mail at email@example.com, by request form at Ask a Librarian, or in person (8:00 am – 4:30 pm, Monday – Friday). The library is located in Room 175 of the Transportation Building in St. Paul.
