Top State Government Websites
One of the best places to go when you are doing basic, state-level research, are state government websites. Usually government websites are pretty good, but they all have their strengths and weaknesses. Recently, Marc Holzer, Aroon Manoharan, Robert Shick, and Genie Stowers took stock of those strengths and weaknesses in the U.S. States E-Governance Report (2008)—An Assessment of State Government Websites. The report evaluates state government websites based on content, security, and usability. The Indiana State website is a very useful resource, and in fact it ranks fifth on the list of overall best (After Maine, Oregon, Utah, and South Carolina). We are first in the Midwest. Take a look! If you ever find yourself needing to look for state information, it’s good to know what kind of resources you have available to you.
