TRB conducted a webinar on February 20, 2013, from 2 p.m.- 3 p.m. ET that provided users of TRB’s TRID Database
with information about navigating with an updated interface and new search functions. View a recording
of this webinar.
In January 2013, TRB released an updated interface for the TRID Database and added search functions such as drop down lists for selecting search terms, searching by first and last names, and searching for more than one TRB subject area all helping to provide users with more powerful search functions.
TRID, released in 2011, is the world's largest and most comprehensive bibliographic resource on transportation research information. TRID is 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. TRID provides access to more than one million records of transportation research worldwide, with more than 90,000 links to free or fee-based full text.
The first 30 minutes of the webinar will feature information from the presenter and the final 30 minutes is reserved for audience questions.
