MnDOT Employee Newsletters Digitized

by Qin Tang

MnDOT Library has accomplished another digitization milestone. All printed MnDOT employee newsletters are now digitized and keyword-searchable online via Minnesota Reflections, provided by the Minnesota Digital Library.

The newsletters capture a snapshot in time and provide a valuable resource for historical information about the department, including timelines, dates, and photos.

The following is a timeline of the MnDOT employee newsletters which have changed in title, size, and format over the last 60+ years:

  • Minnesota Highways (November 1951 - October 1976)
  • DOT Scene (November 1976 - September/October 1987)
  • Mn/DOT Express (December 1987 - Summer 1995)
  • Mn/DOT Express Focus (May 1995 - October 1996)
  • Mn/DOT News (September 1995 - January/February 2001)
  • DOT Connection (April 4, 2000 - February 12, 2001)
  • MnDOT Newsline (Feb. 14, 2001 - present) Note: Mn/DOT News (print) and DOT Connection (online/e-mail) were merged and replaced by the current Web-based MnDOT Newsline.

The current issue is available at http://www.newsline.dot.state.mn.us. All the previous issues are available in the Newsline Archive at http://newsline.dot.state.mn.us/archive.html.

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 library.dot@state.mn.us, 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.
