The Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Berkeley has supported transportation research at the University of California since 1948. About 50 faculty members, 50 staff researchers and more than 100 graduate students take part in this multidisciplinary program, which receives roughly $40 million in research funding on average each year. Alexandre Bayen, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, is its director.

Cruel Seas: World War 2 Merchant Marine-Related Nautical Fiction from the 1930s to Present

(2015)

Cruel Seas is an annotated bibliography of fiction in English that involves civilian steamships of the merchant marine in works set during World War Two (or slightly before).  While the subtitle states "1930s to Present," the last entry was added in 2008, and the work will not be updated. 

The entries include novels, novellas, and short stories, but exclude poetry, theater plays, and fiction written for juveniles (unless the work can appeal to adults as well). Many of the works involve ships in convoy across the Atlantic.

An earlier version of Cruel Seas was published in softcover edition in 2004 by the Institute of Transportation Studies of the University of California, Berkeley, under the slightly different title of Cruel Seas: Merchant Shipping-Focused World War 2 Nautical Fiction, 1939 to 2004.

For an annotated bibliography of fiction in English that involves civilian steamships, 1845-2012 (so, not limited to fiction of World War Two), but excludes the works listed in Cruel Seas, see the author's Steamer Stories, published by Oak Knoll Press in 2016.

Sources of Information in Highways: A Bibliography

(2001)

This bibliography, containing over 650 entries, is intended to serve as a guide to the major sources of information on highways. While sources listed focus primarily on the United States and Canada, some international materials have been included. Though emphasis is on current publications, some materials of historical interest have also been included. Resources listed in the bibliography include both print and electronic materials, with many Internet sites falling within that latter category. The bibliography was a collaborative effort and was compiled by twelve members of the Transportation Division of the Special Libraries Association. The resultant bibliography is part of a larger Transportation Division project, a revised edition of the Division's multi-volume work, Sources of Information in Transportation. The full, multi-volume new edition (its 5th ) will be available in electronic format on the Internet, with a publication date of late 2001 anticipated. Information concerning the new edition of Sources of Information in Transportation may be found at the Division's website: http://www.library.nwu.edu/transportation/slatran/

Sources of Information in Intelligent Transportation Systems: A Bibliography

(2001)

This bibliography is intended to serve as a guide to sources of information in Intelligent Transportation Systems. While it focuses primarily on U.S. and Canadian publications, some international materials have been included. Emphasis is on current publications, however, some materials of historical interest have also been included. Although the term ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) is considered to be the more current terminology, the term IVHS (Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems) has been retained and used when appropriate to reflect older publications of historical significance. This bibliography is based primarily on the holdings of the Harmer E. Davis Transportation Library at the Institute of Transportation Studies, University of California at Berkeley. References for electronic publications and web sites are current as of March 2001.

Transportation Periodicals And Newsletters Currently Received At The Institute Of Transportation Studies Library, University Of California At Berkeley

(2000)

This publication is intended to serve as a convenient reference to selected transportation periodicals and newsletters currently (2000) received by UC Berkeley's Harmer E. Davis Transportation Li-brary. This latest version of Transportation Periodicals and Newsletters represents a thourough revision of earlier editions (1989, 1993, and 1995) published under the same (or similar) title. The subject content of this listing reflects the subject strengths of the H.E. Davis Transportation Library: highways and traffic, air transportation, railroads, and urban transit. Water and pipeline modes are represented to a lesser extent. Collection emphasis at the Transportation Library is placed on planning, design, construction, and operations and most titles fall within this context. However, some titles in transportation business and economics do appear. While primary emphasis is placed on English language publications published in the United Sates, significant transportation journals from abroad are also included in the pages which follow.
