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 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.
