TRAIL Current Activities

TRAIL is actively digitizing federal technical reports issued. We invite institutions to join us in our work by becoming members of TRAIL. 

TRAIL constantly strives to collect complete holdings of the series we have chosen to digitize; our regularly updated Needs List page identifies the specific documents we need to acquire in order to complete these series. As TRAIL identifies new series to digitize, we will list them on the Series List, so that others may know what our next priorities are. In this way, we hope to elicit contributions of collections and avoid duplication of effort.

Several members of the TRAIL Steering Committee have given papers and presentations at a variety of conferences about TRAIL’s work, documenting its progress over time.
