University of Georgia Law School receives grant to create US legislative process tool

From the press release:

Congratulations to Associate Dean Usha Rodrigues, Law Library Director Carol A. Watson and Faculty Services Librarian Thomas “T.J.” Striepe for their work with the Terry College of Business that resulted in an approximately $50,000 grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services. This money will provide for the design of an open-source open government digital transparency platform that will offer data access to and visualization of the U.S. legislative process. This interactive, informative tool will aid citizens in becoming more engaged, allowing them to form their opinions on legislation in a quick, fact-based and safe online environment. By combining text analysis, network analysis and visualization, the project will provide insights into how libraries can take on new roles supporting access to government and legislative information and data.

Kudos — Joe
