About the Institute of Transportation Studies Library

Employees of California public sector transportation agencies at the local, state, and regional levels, including federal agencies located in California, are eligible to request anything in the transportation library’s catalog for free. The library will even provide up to 50 pages of photocopies of articles from journals, trade magazines, or conference reports, or will scan and e-mail the requested material.

We encourage public agency employees to contact the library for reference services and loans. Specialized services are provided free to public agency employees with funding from the California Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP). For details, see or contact:
