State Agency Databases Activity Report 2/12/2012

The volunteers at the State Agency Databases Across the Fifty States project at http://wikis.ala.org/godort/index.php/State_Agency_Databases remained busy this past week.


Utah has been tentatively adopted. Assuming all goes well, this would leave us with the following states in need of adoption:

  • Maryland
  • Minnesota
  • Rhode Island

If one of these states interests you, check out our Volunteer Guide. If you can meet the basic responsibilities, send me an e-mail at dnlcornwall AT Alaska DOT net.
