Directory of Transportation Libraries and Information Centers in North America 8th edition - revised (2006) Online

Description: This eighth edition marks a departure from previous Directories. First of all this edition is accessible via the World-Wide Web at the US DOT Bureau of Transportation Statistics' web site. Entries can be searched directly, browsed or downloaded. A second change is the inclusion of libraries outside of the United States and Canada. Libraries from Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Asia, South and Central America are listed. This is by no means a complete listing of transportation libraries, but it is a start. As with earlier editions, entries provide address and contact information, collection size and scope, and now will link to each library's Web presence, if available.

Contact information: Contact Susan Dresley, John A. Volpe National Transportation Systems Center Technical Reference Center, Kendall Square, Cambridge MA 02142, phone 617-494-2117, fax 617-494-3387 or email dresley@volpe.dot.gov with any corrections, updates, or additions.
