Accessing the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) Library

ARRB Group Logo

To provide greater awareness of various references and resources which are available, CPEE in conjunction with the ARRB Group has initiated a targeted webinar to be held on 17 March at 11:00am AEDT.

The Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) Library informs and connects Australia’s land transport community under the federal, state and territory-funded National Interest Services (NIS) program.

While this session is for all NIS Clients, following collaboration with the Centre for Pavement Engineering Education (CPEE), the session will ensure it is of particular benefit to CPEE students studying specialist roads and pavements post graduate programs.

Primarily the session will demonstrate the range of resources accessible through the ARRB Library.

  • Learn how to easily locate current and archival research material as ARRB Librarian Jill Aron takes you through the ARRB Knowledge Base and TRID.
  • Find out how to also access the wide-ranging expertise of the ARRB Library information professionals.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

At the end of 2016, after 20 years of growth and enhancement, the CPEE vision is little changed. The circumstances which were the catalyst for the creation of CPEE those 20 years ago remain and stakeholder demands for the outcomes CPEE provides to meet these needs, have only intensified in recent years.

At a celebratory reception for key players in CPEE history, held on 1 December 2016, many past and present Council Members, Unit Writers and Unit Chairs attended along with the unique gathering of all past CPEE Independent Chairmen and CPEE CEO’s. The inaugural Chairman Lance Midgley and inaugural CEO, Ken Mavin were warmly recognised for their major contributions to the establishment of CPEE.
