The Transportation Research Information Services (TRIS) database, formally housed on the National Transportation Library’s website, is now accessible through the Transportation Research Board’s website. TRIS is the largest database of published transportation research, containing some 650,000 records of journal articles, conference papers, technical reports, and books on all modes and disciplines of transportation. More than 50,000 of the records in TRIS provide links to the full-text documents.

With funding from the state departments of transportation, the component administrations of the U.S. Department of Transportation, and other sponsors of TRB, the TRIS Database has become the largest and most comprehensive resource for published transportation research. As part of the website change, the National Transportation Library is developing an information portal that will include acess to the TRIS and other transportation information resources. TRIS offers browsing of recent publications by mode.

TRIS allows users to print, download, e-mail, or share search results. TRIS also offers users the ability to subscribe to RSS (really simple syndication) feeds to get the latest publications on a specific topic and to submit publications for indexing.
