FOREWORD



The objective of this research project was to update Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA), Office of International Programs' (OIP) document, entitled, Acquiring Highway Transportation Information from Abroad: Handbook (Publication No. FHWA-PL-95-011[B]), which was developed out of the FHWA International Technology Scanning Program, and was published in November 1994.


The intent of the revised document is to provide for the highway transportation professional, a guide to aid in identifying principally non-U.S., as well as key U.S. highway transportation information sources and document acquisition services. Topics include: (1) highway transportation libraries, information, and research centers; (2) websites; (3) document delivery vendors, lenders, and clearinghouses; (4) bibliographic and non-bibliographic databases; and (5) highway transportation associations, organizations, and other professional societies.


The information is this report should be of interest to domestic and foreign highway transportation professionals; as well as academicians, applied researchers, and administrative officials in the highway transportation arena; and transportation information library specialists. The Guides are also useful for civil engineers or other professionals in highway construction, operations, and materials; as well as highway safety and human factors engineers; psychologists; and social scientists.

INTRODUCTION



In November 1994, a Handbook (Publication No. FHWA-PL-95-011[B]) was produced as a companion document to the final report developed under FHWA Contract DTFH61-93-C-00035, entitled "Acquiring Highway Transportation from Abroad." The purpose of the Acquiring Highway Transportation from Abroad: Handbook was to provide reference sources for identifying and acquiring foreign and domestic highway transportation information. The Handbook covered the following topics: domestic transportation libraries and information centers; online database vendors; CD-ROM products; document delivery vendors; associations, organizations, and professional societies; foreign highway and transportation research centers; foreign transportation libraries and database contributors; electronic bulletin boards; and selected Internet discussion groups.



The Handbook has been very popular with highway transportation professionals since its publishing in November 1994, and it was recently suggested that the Handbook be reprinted. However, it was speculated that much of the information in the Handbook is outdated. Also, new highway transportation topics have appeared, as well as new subject database products and document acquisition services. In addition, with the advent of the Internet in the last five years, there have been dramatic changes in how people access information, as well as how they send and receive information (e.g., electronic mailing addresses and websites). Thus, a sufficient need to revise this publication was identified.



The goal of the current effort was to produce a highway transportation information resource guide for domestic and international professionals, with an emphasis on extending the coverage for international sources. This Guide will be useful for the traffic engineer or transportation planner, as well as academics, applied researchers, administrative officials, and highway transportation information and library professionals. The Guide will also be useful for civil engineers or other professionals in highway construction, operations, and materials, as well as highway safety and human factors engineers and psychologists, as well as social scientists. Intelligent transportation systems professionals will also find the Guide useful.



Information sources from member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) (i.e., Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxemburg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom, and United States); and other selected countries, principally: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and South Africa are included in this Guide. Only key United States sources are included.



This Guide encompasses the five topic areas that have each been produced as a separate volume for this project: (1) highway transportation libraries, information, and research centers; (2) websites; (3) document delivery vendors, lenders, and clearinghouses; (4) bibliographic and non-bibliographic databases; and (5) highway transportation associations, organizations, and other professional societies. A brief description of the methods used to obtain the information included in each volume (corresponding to the major sections of this report) is presented below, along with a description about how the information is presented.



In Volume 1 (the section in this report that lists and describes Highway Transportation Libraries and Information Centers), several research and information search methods were used to identify and collect appropriate information. They include: using telephone, telefax, and electronic mail correspondence with government officials and staff from transportation libraries and information centers; reviewing existing directories of transportation information sources; conducting searches in computerized online and CD-ROM transportation-related subject databases; and conducting comprehensive searches on the Internet using several search engines, as well as accessing transportation information and library-related websites.

Information about each library/information center is displayed in tabular format, one institution per page. Information includes: name of country; name of library/information center (in national language and English); mailing address; telephone and fax numbers; e-mail address; website; contact; coverage (topics covered in library); collection size - titles (i.e., books, reports, monographs, conference proceedings, other literature) and serials (i.e., journals, periodicals, bulletins, newsletters); special collections; and additional information.



In Volume 2 (the section in this report that lists and describes Websites), a list of organizations (native language and English), and their website addresses is provided, with a brief description of the organizations and website content. Some of the websites are currently presented only in the native language of the country where the website is produced. However, many websites include alternate languages, as well, such as English and French, and a few indicate that alternate language versions are being produced. State- and provincial-level transportation departments are not included in this section, nor does this section include libraries with highway transportation departments, as these sites were identified in Volume 1. The information is presented in tabular format by country. Although all websites included in this documents were accessed in April 2000, it is important to note that website addresses are subject to change.



In Volume 3 (the section in this report that lists and describes Document Delivery Suppliers), several research and information search methods were used to identify and collect appropriate information. They include: correspondence with transportation library staff; searching and scanning existing directories of information sources; conducting searches in computerized online and CD-ROM transportation-related subject databases; and conducting comprehensive searches on the Internet using several search engines, as well as accessing information and document vendor and clearinghouse websites. Information about each document delivery supplier is displayed in tabular format, one entity per page. Information includes: name; address; telephone and fax number; e-mail address; website; description of services; average costs per document delivered; and additional information. As a general rule, all of the document delivery suppliers can accommodate several different methods of payment, including deposit accounts, payment upon order, check or money order, credit card, and invoice.



In Volume 4 (the section in this report that lists and describes Bibliographic and Non-Bibliographic Database Producers), several research and information search methods were used to identify and collect appropriate information. They include: correspondence with transportation library staff; searching and scanning existing directories of information sources; conducting searches in computerized online and CD-ROM transportation-related subject databases; and conducting comprehensive searches on the Internet using several search engines. Information about each database is displayed in tabular format, one database per page. Information includes: name, contact/address, telephone, fax, e-mail, website, topics, dates covered, file size, publications covered, update frequency, and availability/access host. Several of these databases are accessible through websites on the Internet. However, many of the databases are only available through subscription to online service providers. These providers have several types of fee options available to meet the needs of users. The Dialog Corporation, STN International, and SilverPlatter Information Ltd. provide online service for the highway transportation and related subject databases that have been identified in this section. SilverPlatter also provides CD-ROM versions of several of the databases listed. The main contacts for these companies are also presented in this section of the Guide.



In Volume 5 (the section in this report that lists and describes Highway Transportation Associations, Organizations, and Other Professional Societies), the focus is on identifying international associations, organizations, and other professional societies that can provide a source of information about research projects, expert and consultant directories, standards and regulations, and calendars of conference events. In developing Volume 5, several research and information search methods were used to identify and collect appropriate information. These included: correspondence with transportation library staff; searching and scanning existing directories of information sources (e.g., Gale Research Inc.'s Encyclopedia of Associations) in computerized online and CD-ROM transportation-related subject databases; and conducting comprehensive searches on the Internet using several search engines and searching in several government and transportation-related web sites. Volume 5 is set up in tabular form with three columns: (1) name of association, organization, or professional society; (2) contact information (i.e., address, phone, fax, email, and URL); and (3) a description of the association, organization, or professional society that includes the mission statement and membership characteristics.
