TRAIL (Technical Report Archive & Image Library) will hold an Information and update session from 1:30 - 2:30 pm Eastern time on Sunday, June 26 in Orlando, in conjunction with the ALA Annual Conference. The session will be held in the Lake Sheen Room of the Orlando Hilton Hotel.

All new and prospective members of TRAIL are invited to learn more about the project at this open meeting.

TRAIL identifies, digitizes, archives, and provides access to legacy federal technical reports. Technical reports communicate research progress in technology and science; they deliver information for technical development to industry and research institutions contributing to the continued growth of science and technology. These highly detailed reports contain valuable information serving specialized audiences of researchers. While availability to more recent technical report literature has greatly improved with Internet access, many legacy technical report documents remain elusive to researchers.
