Last week was busy at the State Agency Databases Project at http://wikis.ala.org/godort/index.php/State_Agency_Databases.
Today’s featured database was suggested by Annie Moots, the volunteer for Missouri:
Missouri Appellate Courts and Missouri Supreme Court Opinions (http://www.courts.mo.gov/page.
This database contains the full-text opinions, including concurring and dissenting opinions, of the Missouri Eastern, Western, and Southern Districts Courts of Appeals and the Missouri Supreme Court back to 1997. It is searchable by court, opinion, or date. Other information includes a summary of the opinion, the case name and number, attorneys for the parties, the court or commission from which the case was appealed, the name of the judge who authored the opinion, and the vote.
It seems like a good idea to celebrate new volunteers:
- Arizona – Lindsay O’Neill, Arizona State University
- New Jersey – Stephanie Bartz, Rutgers University
These pages weren’t officially orphaned. But the new volunteers seemed like a better fit for the states involved. I’m particularly happy to give Arizona to someone actually working in Arizona.
SIX STILL ORPHANED
The following six state pages on the State Agency Databases Project are still open for adoption because the previous volunteer was unable to update the page during 2013:
If you are interested in being the documents specialist for one of these pages, please read our Volunteer Guide. If you feel like you can meet the requirements, e-mail Daniel Cornwall, project coordinator at danielcornwall AT gmail dot com.
