TRAIL Current Activities

TRAIL is actively digitizing federal technical reports. 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.  Information about the series we are working on can be found on our Series List guide.  The inventories linked from that page can also be used to identify where reports are needed to complete series.

TRAIL welcomes libraries and other organizations to contact TRAIL regarding content donations that are within scope.  A library need not be a member of TRAIL in order to contribute content.  Criteria and guidelines for donations are documented here.

TRAIL members have given papers and presentations at conferences and meetings on a variety of topics related to TRAIL’s work, documenting its progress over time.
