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.

  • ​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.
