The Transportation Library Connectivity Pooled Fund Study is a grassroots effort by librarians and information professionals in 22 state departments of transportation, two university transportation centers and a metropolitan transportation authority.

Since 2005 members have been pooling their talents, energy and resources to develop better ways to serve practitioners in transportation agencies. A full-time consultant provides technical assistance to member libraries and carries out a ten-point annual work plan aimed at improving information access throughout the transportation community.

See our Year Four Report "Resources for Innovation" for a review of pooled fund initiatives and joint activities with the National Transportation Library and regional Transportation Knowledge Networks.
