Here in the MSU Libraries, your gift during Giving Day will help us advance many initiatives, including:
1. Help support the students, faculty, staff, and citizens who will travel to DC in June to help coordinate, present, and document the Ozarks Program at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the National Mall.
2. Help advance our digitization efforts. Whenever something is digitized and made publicly available free of charge online, usage increases exponentially. We have a growing number of three-dimensional objects that we want to digitize, including Ozark objects (bowls, figurines, etc.) and trench art (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trench_art).
