Government Agencies & Elected Officials at State Agency Databases Project

This week’s State Agency Databases Project subject highlight is Government Agencies & Elected Officials, featuring 42 states that project volunteers know to have publicly searchable databases in this subject area. Three examples from this compilation are:


Local Alabama Government Search – Search for local officials by zip code or place name.



Louisiana Boards and Commissions Database – This database is searchable by the name of the commission, board or by name of an individual member. It includes names of all the members on the board or commission, a contact address and phone number, appointed date (if available), and expiration date of term (if available).



Tennessee State phone directory – Search for state employees or state offices.


For more, see http://godort.libguides.com/govdirdbs. 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.
