Research Digest, August 2018, Federal Government Publications
CTR Library’s August 2018 issue of the Research Digest is now available for download. This is our first issue to include U.S. Government publications that were recently selected for our collection.
This month’s digest provides abstracts for 21 publications recently made available online from entities such as the Federal Highway Administration. Abstracts and full-text links are provided for each report or product.
We have included 3 LibGuides produced and provided through the Western Transportation Knowledge Network (WTKN) and FHWA Pooled Fund Study TPF 5(237): Library Connectivity and Development. These LibGuides provide valuable guidance and resources on unmanned aerial vehicles, rail-highway crossings, and copyright for researchers.
Other publications of particular interest are the Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Framework (including several Texas examples), Evaluation of Promoting Roadside Revegetation: An Integrated Approach to Establishing Native Plants (including Texas projects), and Synthesis of Approaches for Addressing Resilience in Project Development (including case studies by CAMPO, NCTCOG, and TxDOT).
