LTRC Library Policies and Procedures

--The LTRC Library is open to members of the LaDOTD and LSU communities as well as other agencies and the general community, for assistance in Transportation related research.
--The Library is open during TTEC Building hours - 7:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The Library follows the Louisiana state offices holiday schedule.
--The Librarian's hours are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
--Occasionally the Library will be closed to general access while reserved for testing, meetings or webinars. These events will be listed on the TTEC Calendar.

Library Reservations:

--Testing in the library is arranged by Structured Training Programs and is set up on a continuing basis. Currently testing takes place most Thursdays, from 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon.

--Meetings and webinars may occasionally be scheduled in the library for small groups when no other space in the facility is available.
  • Requests are made through the Librarian.
  • Requests must be made at least 48 hours in advance to allow for notification of researchers.
--"Impromptu" meetings are welcome in the Library space, but consideration and preference will be given researchers using library resources.

Library computer use:

There are currently four General Access Computers available in the Library, intended for use by those attending classes in the building and for those conducting transportation related research.
  • --Located along East wall, in small cubicles.
  • --May be logged in either as a "guest" or as a DOTD Employee
  • --These computers do not automatically log off. Everyone must log themselves off DOTD Network when finished. Failure to log off will lock the computer preventing other researchers from using it.

Library Circulation:

--Materials may be checked out to La DOTD staff as well as LSU faculty, staff and students. Please be prepared to provide identification and contact information, including but not limited to, Name, Email, Phone, and LSUID

--Materials will be loaned out for a period of 4 weeks. The library reserves the right to shorten that time for certain items.
