State Agency Databases Activity Report 10/27/2013

My apologies for the long drought on updates for the State Agency Databases Project at http://wikis.ala.org/godort/index.php/State_Agency_Databases. Volunteers have been active, but among other things I’ve been taking an amazing online class called the Hyperlinked Library through San Jose State University. The course materials are open and available at http://mooc.hyperlib.sjsu.edu/ and I think that all of the modules could be of considerable benefit to government information librarians.

But I digress. For a listing of the last two weeks worth of activity, visit http://tinyurl.com/statedbs14d. Here are some highlights:


ALASKA (Daniel Cornwall)

ScholarWorks@UA – Institutional repository for theses, dissertations and other research by University of Alaska Students and Faculty. May be searched or browsed by campus, issue date, author, subject, titles or type of resource.

DELAWARE (John Stevenson)

Door-to-door Salesperson Search – Searchable by salesperson last name, business name, or license number.


Search current job openings – DC Department of Human Resources (DCHR) helps District agencies meet their staffing requirements by ensuring the highest level of customer service to city residents.

MISSOURI (Annie Moots)

Consumer Confidence Reports – Search for and view public water supply system reports by county.

OHIO (Audrey Hall)

Lake Erie Shore Erosion Management Plan – The plan promotes a successful means of controlling erosion by developing erosion control recommendations that are based on regional site conditions. Link to a map and information for each region.


Aside from the updating above, Lynn McClelland has made extensive revisions to the Medical Practitioner Databases pages.
