This short video shows how you can access materials in the trial and share your feedback with this anonymous survey.
The VDOT Research Library has maintained a subscription to Knovel (a full-text eBook database) since 2011, focusing on Civil and Transportation engineering collections. But as we try to support VDOT of Tomorrow more "comprehensively" the library is considering an expansion VDOT's Knovel subscription that would nearly double its size!
For the month of November 2022, we'll be conducting a "trial" (watch this short VIDEO for more details). The trial will provide VDOT employees with unlimited 30-day access to resources in 4 new subject collections. That will include unlimited viewing, printing, downloading and sharing (within Knovel's guidelines) of information from books in the trial collections, which are listed below (click to expand for a full description):
To help us decide how useful these collections are to VDOT the library is administering a brief user-satisfaction survey. We encourage VDOT employees with interest and/or expertise in subject areas above to explore Knovel, review books of relevance, and provide us with feedback on your experience. Please follow these simple steps:
1. Access Knovel and explore resources in the four trial collections shown above. If you have never used Knovel, please consult this Quick-Start Guide.
2. After exploring Knovel (especially the new content listed above!) take a 2-minute survey.
We hope you will also forward information about the trial to VDOT colleagues who have expertise or interest in the subjects listed above.
Please get in touch if you have any questions along the way!
