About On the Banks of the Red CedarOn the Banks of the Red Cedar is a new website providing quick and easy online access to documents, images, film, audio and textual materials related to the history of Michigan State University. This site is open for use by MSU faculty and staff, students, alumni and the public. On the Banks supports the missions of several MSU units by increasing the visibility of resources currently available online, providing a framework for future MSU digitization and research projects, expanding the audience base for university collections, and supporting new opportunities for research and study of MSU's historical collections.
On the Banks is a collaborative project between the University Archives & Historical Collections, MATRIX, MSU Libraries, and several other campus units. As the site grows, additional units from around campus will contribute materials and services to the project.
