State Agency Databases Activity Report: 8/14/2011


This week was relatively quiet at the State Agency Databases Across the Fifty States project.

Our list of orphan pages in need of adoption is unchanged from last week:

If you’re interested in one of the above states, check out our volunteer guide and then send me an e-mail if you’d like to adopt one of the above states. If you adopt a state, be prepared to put your name and contact information on the main project page AND your state page within two weeks of receiving your wiki login. See the Volunteer guide for more details.


Looking at our last seven days of activity at http://tinyurl.com/statedbs, you can see that Adrienne Walker, our volunteer for New Mexico, was primarily responsible for what activity we had this week.


NEW MEXICO (Adrienne Walker)

Sex Offender Registry – This sex offender registry has been designed to provide information to the public concerning the location of sex offenders residing in the State of New Mexico. The Department of Public Safety (DPS) hopes this site will increase and promote public awareness.


Quiet isn’t all bad. A lot of link fixing by many volunteers has been done in the past month or so. If things are quiet this week, it’s probably a sign that if a page has a volunteer, you can count on the freshness of the links.

For pages without a volunteer, like Mississippi, we have some broken links, like this one:

Opinions Databases – Searchable database of Attorney General opinions back to 1979. Check out the Expert Search if you want a lot of searching options, including date limitations and subject searching.

If you know where the AG Opinions database for Mississippi can be found, please let me know. Or better yet, adopt Mississippi and flesh out its database list.
