TRB will conduct a webinar on February 20, 2013, from 2 p.m.- 3 p.m. ET that will provide users of TRB’s TRID Database with information about navigating with an updated interface and new search functions. Participants must register in advance of the webinar, there are no professional credits associated with this webinar, and there is no fee to register for this webinar.
In January 2013, TRB released an updated interface for the TRID Database and added search functions such as drop down lists for selecting search terms, searching by first and last names, and searching for more than one TRB subject area all helping to provide users with more powerful search functions.
TRID, released in 2011, is the world’s largest and most comprehensive bibliographic resource on transportation research information. It is produced and maintained by TRB with sponsorship by state departments of transportation, the various administrations at the U.S. Department of Transportation, and other sponsors of TRB’s core technical activities. The TRID Database is a leading tool for transportation professionals to stay updated on world-wide transportation research covering all modes and disciplines. It contains more than one million references to books, technical reports, conference proceedings, and journal articles in the field of transportation research as well as more than 73,000 links to free or fee-based full-text publications.
The first 30 minutes of the webinar will feature information from the presenter and the final 30 minutes is reserved for audience questions.
