Want to keep up with the latest in transportation, research and library news?  Try subscribing to Connections: The VDOT Research Library's electronic newsletter. On average we post a new article every week or two so you won't be overloaded, and you'll receive an e-mail update notifying you. Sign up today or learn more by going to:

Connections is free.  Anybody can view posts, browse our archives and subscribe to receive e-mail notifications. If you work at VDOT or are interested in transportation research and information, we definitely want you to subscribe! 

Worried about e-mail overload? Don't be…we typically only post a single brief article every 1-2 weeks.

Subscribing Is Easy

Connections is an "opt in" system, which means you can sign up or cancel your subscription at any time. You're in control and the library will never share your contact details with anyone for any reason. To subscribe yourself, follow Step 1 and Step 2 listed in this guide.

Note: If you asked the library to register you for Connections you can skip to Step 2 to "confirm" the subscription we set up. 


Connections is free to anyone who wants to subscribe and we use it to report on all types of resources and transportation research and news of interest to the entire community. However, links in some articles lead to copyrighted material or subscription databases that will only work for VDOT employees or employees of agencies with subscriptions to those resources.
