Alert Options to Stay Informed on Transportation Research
by Marilee Tuite
The Transportation Research Board (TRB) offers a free customizable e-newsletter delivered weekly to your inbox. You can indicate preferences for topics and type of agency (TRB, state DOTs, universities). For more details, please visit http://www.trb.org/Publications/PubsTRBENewsletter.aspx.
As a TRB sponsor, MnDOT receives print copies of many TRB reports, such as the NCHRP series, which are cataloged by the Library and available for routing to employees. The catalog record includes the link to view/download these reports online (note: TRB requires your e-mail address to access a full report).
The TRB journal, Transportation Research Record, is handled differently than TRB reports and syntheses. Issues of Transportation Research Record will soon be digital only. MnDOT employees will continue to have full-text digital access to this journal. You may sign up for topic-specific journal alerts at http://trrjournalonline.trb.org/action/showPreferences?menuTab=Alerts.
To focus on MnDOT-specific research, subscribing to the Accelerator newsletter is a great option: http://www.dot.state.mn.us/research/accelerator.html
If you would like help setting up an alert or searching a topic, please contact MnDOT Library staff 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).
