The University of Georgia Alexander Campbell King Law Library, in partnership with the UGA Terry College of Business Department of Management Information Systems (MIS) and Georgia School of Law, will plan and prototype an open-source open government digital transparency platform. This platform will provide data access and visualization of the U.S. legislative process. For this prototype phase, the project will focused on the passage of the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (JOBS Act). This interactive, informative tool will aid citizens in becoming more engaged, allowing them to form their opinions 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.
