Research: Get Help With Your Research

Have a reference question or need research support or advice? Want advice on the best database or resource to find the answers you need? Maybe you want to ask us to perform a literature search for you? This is a place for all of that and more.

Need Help With Research?

Time is your most precious resource. If you find yourself "Googling" but not "finding" let us know! We want to help by: 

  • Locating and delivering "free" full-text versions of articles, reports, standards or other information you need in a way that is copyright compliant, through ILL and Document Delivery Services.
  • Finding and using Specialized Resources you may not have known were available to you.
  • Providing you with a customized Literature Search Service.
  • Acquiring the materials you and your colleagues need for routine/ongoing use.
  • Connecting you with technical experts to get answers to your specific research questions.
  • Contacting your peers at other state DOTs to survey "best practices" and relaying that info. back to you.
