Web Content Coordinator
Maryland Judiciary-Maryland State Law Library

Provide legal content for the Peoples Law Library website; develop and manage legal information on the website by coordinating a network of attorney contributors who are involved in public interest legal services; conduct legal research, writing and editing of materials not provided through other sources. I provided content for the Peoples Law Library website that provides information to the general public on employment law, disabilities law, civil rights, consumer rights, criminal procedure, social security law, family law, mediation, arbitration, housing, and domestic violence. I met tight deadlines for organizing annual meetings, providing agendas, and creating documents summarizing the progress of the website. I analyzed patron usage and dedicated resources to adding content on the most used area of the website. I responded to patron inquiries for legal information and reported statistics to the web content committee. I suggested new areas of law that should be covered and provided legal content for these areas. Some new areas I suggested included adding a teen resource section, HIV resource database, and cross marketing the Peoples Law Library website with other Maryland Law Libraries. Some of these suggestions were later implemented by the team. I created content for the consumer law section providing the over 100,000 patrons with information about avoiding identity theft and resources for reporting identity theft.
