We figured, "Why reinvent the wheel?"  So nearly all literature searches other patrons have asked us to conduct in recent years are available to everyone at VDOT. They are indexed in the library's EOS Library Catalog, so when you do a regular catalog search they will appear alongside all other kinds of library holdings (books, reports, etc.).  To save you time, trying limiting your search below:

 

Search existing Literature Searches 
    

 

The way search results appear, each search is described so you can see the question asked, the requester, the date of completion and a brief description of the work done.  All searches are linked as full-text documents, however, links only work for VDOT employees on the VDOT network, or using a Virtual Library Card for remote access. 

Don't see what you need? Request a search today using this Research Request Form. For questions contact Rebecca.Ernest@VDOT.Virginia.gov, 434-293-1959.

Note: Searches are "snapshots" of the research landscape at a specific moment in time. They were done for a team or a person who was probably trying to make a decision or select a course of action. That means a search conducted in 2010 will include literature published before but  not after that date. Also, item availability and URLs change over time, so please bear that in mind.
