TRB will be conducting a web seminar or “webinar” on December 1, 2011, from 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM EST, that will enable individuals to become familiar with searching TRID - TRB's Transportation Research Information Services (TRIS) Database and the OECD's Joint Transport Research Centre’s International Transport Research Documentation (ITRD) Database.

TRID, released in 2011, is the world's largest and most comprehensive bibliographic resource on transportation research information.  It is produced and maintained by the Transportation Research Board of the National Academies with sponsorship by state departments of transportation, the various administrations at the U.S. Department of Transportation, and other sponsors of TRB's core technical activities.  ITRD is produced by ITRD member organizations under the sponsorship of the Joint Transport Research Centre (collectively JTRC) of the International Transport Forum and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). 
 
The Transportation Research Board's TRID website is a leading tool for transportation professionals to stay updated on the status of world-wide transportation research. TRID covers all modes and disciplines of transportation and contains more than 900,000 records of references to books, technical reports, conference proceedings, and journal articles in the field of transportation research. Almost 500 serial titles are regularly scanned and indexed for TRID.   More than 64,000 records contain links to full-text documents.
