Prisoner Locator Database

The irrepressable Alaskan librarian Daniel Cornwall continues to improve the State Agency database wiki that he started,with the assistance of many librarians all over the US. He has started to create subject pages for the database where we can collect links to agencies in all 50 states that provide information on a certain topic. He has created a page of Prisoner Locator info by state and asks for help with adding to the information and providing annotations if you can. He also links to an unannotated list of state prisoner locators put together at USA dot gov.
As the point person for Pennsylvania in this project, I can tell you that this is truly a collaborative project and if anyone wants to contribute ideas or information to the wiki it would be great. The "state agencies by subject area" is something that we can build that would really be a great service to librarians everywhere. If you're not sure how to wiki just email me and I'll be happy to help.
