WHERE WE ARE
Research Library staff are happy to help NJ State government employees with the following:
Materials are available from many transportation sources. They include:
Most items are available free, many as a result of memberships and subscriptions paid for by NJ DOT. More and more frequently, the source provides digital versions only.
The Research Library contains materials in these formats: print; Portable Document Format (PDF); and links to online items. You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the PDF files. The library also has CD-ROMs and DVDs.
Subjects and Access:
Transportation is a very broad topic. As a result, the DOT Research Library has research reports, reference items, and books on a wide variety of subjects. That broad scope includes:
The Research Library has study guides and examination preparation materials for civil service, Professional Engineer (PE), and Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examinations. The NJ State Library has a very large collection of these items; they can be easily requested and sent to the DOT Research Library.
As of now, the NJ State Library Catalog contains only a portion of the DOT Research Library’s holdings. Since not everything owned or available appears in the catalog, it is a good idea to check with the Librarian to find out if an item is at NJDOT or can be gotten elsewhere. NJDOT Librarians are actively working to classify and catalog all items and get them up on the shelves as soon as possible.
For New Jersey government employees, most materials are available for loan for four weeks with possible renewal, as long as there is no waiting list. Examination study materials mostly have a two-week loan period, and Reference items are generally available for onsite use only. Special provisions can be arranged, depending on user needs and item availability.
Members of the general public are welcome to use materials onsite by appointment or request a loan through their local or institutional library via interlibrary loan.
