ODOT Library

The Oregon Department of Transportation Library serves as a technical information resource for our agency, as well as providing services to other state, county and local government agencies, and the general public. The collection includes a comprehensive selection of transportation-related publications, journals, and standards, including titles from American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, Transportation Research Board, Federal Highway Association, and American Society of Civil Engineers. In addition, the library houses the ODOT History Center, which offers an extensive collection of historic photos, reports, maps and documents covering the 100+ year history of the agency.


Engineering Workbench from Accuris has replaced the agency subscription to the ASTM Compass Portal for access to ASTM standards and AASHTO titles.  Please check below under the "Journals and Standards" tab for information on registering and accessing this resource.  The Accuris subscription is for ODOT employees only.


The ODOT Library provides:

  • Professional and technical reference books and manuals.
  • Technical information and specialized transportation research assistance.
  • Interlibrary loan services for items not found in the ODOT Library.
  • Online access to standards and journals (ODOT employees only), and databases for research assistance.
  • Study guides and resources for FE and PE exams.
  • Reference materials, including Oregon Laws (1911-current), Oregon Blue Book (1911-current), and ODOT biennial and annual reports.


The library is part of the ODOT Research Section, located at the Mill Creek Building in Salem, 555 13th St NE, Salem, OR 97301.

​The ODOT Library catalog allows you to search the library collections. Items can be sent by shuttle or mail; simply phone or email to request a loan. Items not found in the collection can generally be obtained from other libraries through Interlibrary Loan.

  • ​LibGuides: LibGuides offer a platform for gathering and organizing resources for research requests. Some of these guides were created by the ODOT librarian in response to specific requests from within the agency; others were prepared by other transportation librarians - several as a group effort. LibGuides are offered through a subscription negotiated by the FHWA transportation libraries pooled fund study.
