Law Librarian Stephen Parks selected to present at USM's 6th Annual Student Research Colloquium.
Parks '10, currently pursuing a MLIS Degree at the University of Southern Mississippi, has been selected to present his research focusing on the use of technology by libraries to provide citizens greater access to their government. His presentation will use the Mississippi College Judicial Data Project as an example. The Judicial Data Project provides Mississippi citizens access to the two highest appellate courts in the state of Mississippi. Mississippians, whether they be lawyers or laypeople, now have free access to oral argument videos, case briefs, and case opinion summaries thanks to the work of the Mississippi College Law Library which created the Judicial Data Project in 2007.
The USM Research Colloquium provides an opportunity to graduate and undergraduate students from all disciplines to present their research and creative works in poster format. This year's Colloquium is being held April 26 in the Southern Miss. Thad Cochran Center.
