National Transportation Knowledge Network – Throughout the country, regional transportation knowledge networks (TKNs) are established or being developed to help facilitate access to information in support of transportation development.

Midwest Transportation Knowledge Network – Founded in December 2001, the MTKN is a network of state DOT and academic transportation libraries in the Midwest.

Western Transportation Knowledge Network – The Western Transportation Knowledge Network (WTKN) is comprised of member organizations from AASHTO Region 4. Membership includes libraries representing state Departments of Transportation (DOTs), academic institutions, transit agencies, metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) and private industry.

AASHTO – The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials is a nonprofit, nonpartisan association representing highway and transportation departments in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. It represents all five transportation modes: air, highways, public transportation, rail, and water. Its primary goal is to foster the development, operation, and maintenance of an integrated national transportation system.

TRB/TRID – One of six major divisions of the National Research Council, the Transportation Research Board (TRB) promotes innovation and progress in transportation through research. TRID, an integrated database that combines the records from TRB’s Transportation Research Information Services (TRIS) Database and the OECD’s Joint Transport Research Centre’s International Transport Research Documentation (ITRD) Database, provides access to more than one million records of transportation research worldwide.

USDOT – The United States Department of Transportation’s top priorities are to keep the traveling public safe and secure, increase their mobility, and have our transportation system contribute to the nation’s economic growth. It employs almost 60,000 people across the country, in the Office of the Secretary of Transportation (OST) and its operating administrations and bureaus, each with its own management and organizational structure.

National Transportation Library – The Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA) coordinates the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) research programs and is charged with advancing the deployment of cross-cutting technologies to improve our Nation’s transportation system.
