State Agency Databases Activity Report 4/22/2012

While it has been nearly a month since my last report on the State Agency Databases Across the Fifty States project at http://wikis.ala.org/godort/index.php/State_Agency_Databases, our volunteer document specialists have stayed active.


For a play by play of the last two weeks worth of activity, see http://tinyurl.com/statedbs14d. Below are some highlights:


Lynn McClelland did link checking this past week fixing a significant number of links for Arkansas, Maryland, New Mexico and Oregon, among others.


Beth Goble checked links and added a database of legislative transcripts.


Jennifer Davison reorganized the page and fixed some broken links.


Susanne Caro added the following database:

State History Publications Online – Full text for Utah State History and the Utah State Historical Society publication beginning with the first issue of the Utah Historical Quarterly in 1928. Includes books, periodicals,professional and technical literature searchable by keyword, date and table of contents.


Daniel Cornwall (Alaska) touched on the SADATFS project in a webinar titled “Databases By Alaskans” which can be viewed at http://library.state.ak.us/is/info_services_training.html.
