State Agency Databases Activity Report 12/18/2011

Welcome to the last State Agency Databases Activity Report for 2011. As this report is written on Sundays, I’ll be taking a break for Christmas and New Year’s. If you celebrate Christmas I wish you a Merry Christmas, otherwise I wish you a great holiday season and hope you have a happy and informative 2012.

With our December link checking in full swing, this past week was quite busy at the State Agency Databases Across the Fifty States project at http://wikis.ala.org/godort/index.php/State_Agency_Databases.

SUBJECT PAGE ACTIVITY

Health Practitioner Databases (Lynn McClelland)

With the addition of Maryland and New Mexico, Lynn McClelland reports that she has posted information on various kinds of health practitioners for all 50 states plus the District of Columbia. We hope that you will explore and share this page far and wide.

If the Health Practitioner Databases page inspires you to create a subject page of your own, please let me know.
