msu.seum is a free app that lets you explore and experience the cultural heritage of Michigan State University in the palm of your hand.

Developed as a collaboration between the Cultural Heritage Informatics Initiative (http://chi.anthropology.msu.edu), the Michigan State University Campus Archaeology Program (http://campusarch.msu.edu/), and MATRIX: The Center for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences (http://matrix.msu.edu), msu.seum allows people to interact with the rich cultural heritage of Michigan State University’s campus, and understand how the MSU Campus Archaeology Program helped uncover it. Built on the idea of “campus as museum,” the app connects cultural heritage directly to place, letting people explore what is known about the cultural heritage of MSU, as well as the rich and exciting story of the archaeological and historical research.

Build by Students, Made Stronger through Collaboration

The initial, prototype version of msu.seum was envisioned, designed, and developed by students in the 2011 Cultural Heritage Informatics Fieldschool (http://chi.anthropology.msu.edu/fieldschool). The current version of msu.seum was developed by Michigan State University’s MATRIX: The Center for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences, in collaboration with the Michigan State University Campus Archaeology Program

Development of msu.seum was directed by Dr. Ethan Watrall (Director, Cultural Heritage Informatics Initiative; Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology; Associate Director, MATRIX). Initial design and development by Whitney Cornwell, Heidi Dowding, Rachael Hodder, Katy Meyers, Minh-Tam Nguyen, and Alexis Santos. Additional programming at MATRIX by Peng Xie, Michael Dunn, Anthony D'Onofrio, Connor Avery, Zach Jones, and Stephen Potts. Additional UI design at MATRIX by Dan Jaquint. Additional content design and development by Dr. Lynne Goldstein (Director, Campus Archaeology Program; Professor, Department of Anthropology) and Terry Brock.
