Airport Passenger Terminal Design Library—UPDATE to ACRP WebResources 2

ACRP Project 07-15 created an electronic resource library known as ACRP WebResource 2 that provides a web-based library of various ACRP and non-ACRP documents related to airport passenger terminal design. WebResource 2 was put into use in August 2017, but has not been updated since then. It is important to keep WebResource 2 updated with new airport passenger terminal design documents and to update its functionality and usefulness over the next 3 years.  The objective of this research is to update and maintain ACRP WebResource 2 by providing the following: (1) Recommendations for improvement of the internal and external search capabilities (see Special Note E). This includes, but is not limited to: (a) Grouping the documents by common topics (e.g., those contained in ACRP Report 25); (b) Introducing the ability to search by popular tags; and (c) Improving the search engine optimization (SEO) of the documents.    (2) A process for keeping the WebResource 2 current with ACRP and non-ACRP related documents.   (3) Update and maintain the content of the WebResource 2 over the next 3 years, to include the abstracts and an index of new ACRP and non-ACRP research documents and guidelines related to airport terminal planning and design. Note: Examples of non-ACRP related research include terminal planning and design standards and documents published by IATA, FAA, TSA, ICAO, ACI, and others. (4) A mechanism for users to suggest new documents to include in the WebResource 2.   (5) A determination of which of the related ACRP documents need updating or consolidating—if updates or additional research is needed, create new research problem statements for future consideration (see Special Note B).   The targeted audiences of this research are airport practitioners, including airport staff, planners, engineers, architects, consultants, developers, financial planners, airline facilities personnel, academicians, and students.
