The Transportation Library Connectivity and Development Pooled Fund Study (TPF) is a grassroots effort by librarians and information professionals with multiple state departments of transportation two university transportation centers. Some of our member libraries’s profiles are found in our site visit reports.
In 2005, contributing members pooled their talents, energy and resources as part of the TPF-5(105) Pooled Fund Study. This study ended in 2010 but work remained to be done. In turn, a new Pooled Fund Study – TPF-5(237) – was created. Our quarterly reports of progress can be found here. Visit our image gallery for pictures and graphics.
