TRAIL Media Kit

TRAIL provides promotional materials and information to help member institutions promote TRAIL resources and services locally.


In 2021, TRAIL is celebrating its fifteen years of preserving technical reports and making them accessible.  To acknowledge this milestone, TRAIL has a celebratory logo and video that may be used for promotions.


These infographics highlight fiscal year accomplishments.



These brochures highlight the importance of technical reports and highlight TRAIL tools to access reports.  The brochures contain the same content, but one has more color and the other has less color, and is therefore cheaper to print.  Designed to help TRAIL libraries spread the word among library staff, research and teaching faculty, students, and others as an introduction to TRAIL, as well as to opportunities to participate in TRAIL
