was great to be able to participate in today’s ETKN conference call,
something I’ve not been able to do much recently due to a standing
conflict with the scheduled time and many pressing demands.
thought it might be a good idea for me to provide you with some information
about “LIST” the TRB committee I chair, and which Sandy Brady, Lynn Matis
and others of you have been involved in, both as friends and as members. LIST
stands for “Library and Information Science for Transportation.” The
committee is 12 years old and I believe it has greatly elevated the status of

transportation community by monitoring the use of new resources and tools in
the transportation arena, defining critical research and training issues
relating to their implementation, and promoting the benefits of these

attaching the minutes from our last meeting, at the TRB Annual meeting in
January as well. There was great energy in that room and I was really excited by
the brainstorming that went on.
expect we will have a conference call in March and if any of you are interested
in sitting in as “lurkers” please get in touch with me.
