About

The Transportation Librarians Roundtable (TLR), a monthly web conference series, is an initiative of the National Transportation Library (NTL), co-sponsored by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), Transportation Research Board, and the Special Libraries Association's Transportation Division.

The TLR's purpose is to provide transportation librarians with opportunities to learn more about issues of mutual concern and interest and also to have a new means of regular communication among members of that community.

For further information on the TLR, or to suggest possible future topics, please contact Amanda J. Wilson, NTL Director, at Amanda.Wilson@dot.gov or 202-366-2480 or Bob Cullen, AASHTO Information Resource Manager, at bobc@aashto.org or 202-624-8918.
