David E. Boyce Research Papers Collection
Scope and Contents
The David E. Boyce Research Papers Collection consists of 5 boxes of materials generated by Professor David Boyce while researching for his and Huw C. W. L. Williams’ book Forecasting Urban Travel : Past, Present and Future (2015). The material in the collection spans works published and/or created between 1924-2014.
The collection consists of copies of published and unpublished research, academic, and practitioner papers about travel forecasting, correspondence about research between the authors of the study and others, transcriptions from interviews with experts in the field, information on current and now defunct transportation modelling software, as well as copies of transportation software stored in CD-ROMs. The collection also contains a draft of Boyce and Williams’ book stored on a flash drive.
Published monographs used in the study were separated from the research material. Any not already held by the Transportation Library were added to the cataloged collection. Those which duplicated items already held in the Transportation Library were discarded.
