Description

With a quick search online, you can discover the answers to all kinds of questions. Findability within large volumes of information and data has become almost as important as the answers themselves. Without being able to search various types of media ranging from print reports to video, efforts are duplicated and productivity and effectiveness suffer.

The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Research Report 947: Implementing Information Findability Improvements in State Transportation Agencies identifies key opportunities and challenges that departments of transportation (DOTs) face with respect to information findability and provides practical guidance for agencies wishing to tackle this problem. It describes four specific techniques piloted within three State DOTs.

Additional resources with the document include NCHRP Web-Only Document 279: Information Findability Implementation Pilots at State Transportation Agencies and three videos on the Washington State DOT Manual Modernization Pilot.
