Did you know that NDOT employees have the same access to high quality information enjoyed by students and faculty of large universities? It's true. Through our premier WorldShare Interlibrary Loan membership NDOT has borrowing access to literally BILLIONS of books, articles and industry standards, greatly expanding the reach of our library.
To expand the reach of their own collections, libraries have long been eager to loan materials to one another, known as interlibrary loan. Now, with the all-electronic WorldShare, this process has become even quicker and more efficient than ever.
To date we have received academic journal articles on such topics as wind loads, prestressed concrete and accident prevention; books on bridge aesthetics, archaeology, sustainable street design and urban runoff; and industry standards from sound barriers to safety vests to escalators.
We have received loans from other DOT libraries including California, Illinois, Iowa and Virginia, along with the US DOT Library; but we've also received loans from several academic libraries including the Naval Postgraduate School, California State University, Carnegie-Mellon and the College of the Siskiyous. We've even received loans form private corporate libraries.
So please make use of this important tool. To request an interlibrary loan call or email the Research Library.
