State Agency Databases Activity Report 12/11/2011

Our volunteers remain active and productive at the State Agency Databases Across the Fifty States project at http://wikis.ala.org/godort/index.php/State_Agency_Databases. We are in the midst of our December link checking activity.


Health Practitioner Databases (Lynn McClelland)

With the addition of NV and ND. Lynn now has 46 states plus the District of Columbia represented on this page. Significant new information has been added to the Minnesota and North Carolina entries, among others.


See our last seven days of activity at http://tinyurl.com/statedbs for a blow by blow description of changes to the wiki. Here are a few highlights:


KENTUCKY (Glen Mcaninch)

Chiropractor Search – You can search the online database of providers by last name, license number, city or county.

LOUISIANA (Rita Franks)

Central Gaming Registry – From the website, “Louisiana Revised Statutes 27:15 (B)(3) requires the Louisiana Gaming Control Board to provide a central registry of all gaming operators licensed under the provisions of various Louisiana gaming acts. Under this statute the central gaming registry is to include the name and address of all licensees, the address of any location where authorized gaming takes place and the name and address of any person who owns or controls more than 5% interest in these establishments. Data can be accessed from the left side of the Central Gaming Registry Home Page screen and is listed in several different categories. + Expand will provide all data for the individual or business accessed. (Arrow) Previous and (Arrow) Next will move you forward and back through the database. Clicking on an entry will provide detailed information on the entry. Quarterly Listings and Ownership Charts are also accessed from the left side of the Home page. Quarterly Listings are stored by year.”

WYOMING (Karen Kitchens)

Wyoming Boards and Commissions – This database contains a list of statutory requirements and a brief description of purpose for each State of Wyoming board and commission. Also contains a list of all board or commission members.


After January 1, 2012, I will be examining pages to see the last time a volunteer touched them. Any pages that haven’t been edited since January 1, 2011 will be reassigned.
