The Transportation Sustainability Guide has just been published by the Eastern Transportation Knowledge Network. Great work, ETKN Librarians!

Offering innovative strategies and solutions for achieving environmental sustainability, this one-stop portal is intended for transportation practitioners in operations, planning, and management. Offering full-text articles, this guide provides information on planning along with specific modes of transportation in highway, transit/rail, maritime/port and aviation. It also lists relevant web sites for regulatory agencies and transportation organizations.

Please share with your colleagues!

 

We are excited about our annual meeting at the University of Michigan next week! We are meeting again with our TKN colleagues and are proud to be able to make these face-to-face meetings happen for these vital partners.

This year the pooled fund members organize their own events and have brand new TKN brochures to hand out. They look fantastic and we’re very proud of this 2014 project. Check them out!
