UAA Justice Center. (1992). "Data Base Directory Update Available." Alaska Justice Forum 9(3): 1 (Fall 1992). The UAA Justice Center announces updates to the Justice Data Base Directory, a research catalog of databases held by Alaska justice agencies.

The Justice Center at the University of Alaska Anchorage has released another expanded version of the Justice Data Base Directory, a research catalogue of data banks maintained by Alaska justice system agencies. The directory describes each data base in detail and provides summary background information on the controlling agencies. Originally published in 1988, the work has been expanded four times. This will be the final expansion in its present format. It represents the first effort in the country to collect such information on a statewide basis.

The directory now includes information on databases held by:

Alaska Court System
