In support of our on-going Better Choices book project – “Bringing Sustainable Transportation to Smaller Asian Cities” – we are in the process of developing an open library with key references on sources intended to be useful on our topic to planners, local government, decision makers, operators, the media, students, and concerned elements of civil society. These documents are being selected with the counsel of leading authorities in our field.
Most of these documents, and in a few cases videos, are available online and at no cost. A certain number of technical documents that are of high quality carry price tags, whose price has been reduced for World Streets readers.
A first selection of documents is now on-line. The library’s internal organization and ease of use will be getting attention in the coming weeks. The library is open 27/7 at https://goo.gl/SyOCf5.
Comments and suggestions are most welcome.
