TRAIL’s original Chair, Maliaca Oxnam of the University of Arizona, has transitioned into the role of Past Chair. TRAIL’s new Chair, Mel DeSart of the University of Washington, begins his two-year term.

A recent article by TRAIL’s Past Chair Maliaca Oxnam highlights the opportunity researchers have to use data sets found in TRAIL’s 42,000+ US government technical reports.

TRAIL continues to add content to its collection of digitized U.S. government technical reports. 

Five new institutions have joined the Technical Report Archive & Image Library project since November 2011.

Members of the Technical Report Archive & Image Library will offer an informal Information Session on June 25 to provide information about the TRAIL project.

The Technical Report Archive & Image Library will hold its annual Steering Committee Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, on April 7 and 8, 2011. Representatives from TRAIL member institutions are encouraged to attend and learn more about the project.

The new search interface for the Technical Report Archive & Image Library (TRAIL) is now available at http://www.technicalreports.org
