The entire collection also contains an additional 17,000+ titles of other transportation-related research from different agencies (FHWA, AASHTO, TRB, state-level transportation agencies, City of Austin, SWUTC, and more) for a total collection containing more than 30,000 print volumes. Open access full-text links are provided for nearly 50% of the collection.
