This week’s State Agency Databases Project subject highlight is Health, Medicine & Safety, featuring 43 states that project volunteers know to have publicly searchable databases in this subject area. Three examples from this compilation are:
Arizona Board of Nursing Online Verification – Search by license number or name; records will include information about actions taken by the Board
Drug License Search – Searchable database of licensed prescription drug distributors in the state of North Carolina. May be searched online by company name or license number. Or download the entire database in MS Excel format.
For more, see http://godort.libguides.com/healthdbs. If you know of state agency produced databases in this area, either comment here or use the “Email me” link on the guide to report a database, which will be forwarded to the appropriate project volunteer.
At the beginning of each year, I (Daniel) compile yearly statistics for the pages of the State Agency Databases Project at http://wikis.ala.org/godort/index.php/State_Agency_Databases. Here are a few highlights from 2014.
We had five states top 10,000 visits a year, led by Missouri with 22,069 visits.
Virginia had the fewest visits at 1638, but even this state page was visited an average of 4.5 times a day in 2014.
Here are all eight of our subject collection pages, ranked by number of visits received in 2014:
1. Prisoner Locater Tools 10373
2. Health Practitioner Databases A-M 7802
3. Historical Media databases 2441
4. Biographical databases 2251
5. Historical Newspaper and Magazine Indexes 2124
6. Health Practitioner Databases N-Z 1893
7. Official records databases 1711
8. Museum Collection databases 986
If you’d like to establish a new subject collection on the State Agency Databases project or would like to build a subject collection on your own site using project links, let me know.
