    WSDOT Research is managed by the WSDOT Office of Research and Library Services within the Engineering Policy and Innovation Division. This Research Office coordinates the process for identifying, selecting, and managing research projects. Each project is also assigned a Technical Monitor linked with a Research Manager to develop and manage projects, document research results, develop implementation plans, and document implementation experiences. The office organizes, manages, and disseminates the results of research. The WSDOT Library serves as a repository of agency publications, and provides library services for agency employees and contractors. Services include reference support, circulation, interlibrary loan, and news alerts.
