State Agency Databases Activity Report 2/20/2012

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.


This week we officially welcome Susanne Caro to the ranks of our document specialist volunteers. She has taken on the Utah page and has begun fixing links.

With Susanne’s arrival, we are left with these three 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.
