MSDIS General News

Once again, we must announce the sad news that the academic year is coming to a close and that we will be saying goodbye to another group of MSDIS interns. While the MSDIS intern program was created during the hugely uncertain times of COVID, it has been a big help to have a team of students who are excited to help with clearinghouse activities. Whether they are double-checking how data are organized within the clearinghouse, building story maps, or just looking for spelling errors and broken links, we truly appreciate the work that Team MSDIS has accomplished.

This year, we are losing Jefferson Daubitz, Kadie Clark, and Abbie Hunt to graduation. All three already have plans lined up for their post-Mizzou lives and we wish them absolutely nothing but the best.

Fortunately, two of our interns, Harry Le and Carson Stone, still have some time left at Mizzou, and we expect to welcome them back to MSDIS in the Fall.


MSDIS Bicentennial Project

To celebrate Missouri’s Bicentennial, Team MSDIS has been working on a small application to highlight all of the important, interesting, scenic, and oddball places around the state. The project is currently under construction and can be found HERE. You’ll notice that Team MSDIS has already seeded the project with a few photos, but the goal is to incorporate photos from the entire MSDIS family. Our friends in Mizzou Geography have begun advertising the project to undergrad and graduate students, but we wanted to use this space to invite our MSDIS users to submit their own photos. If you are interested in adding to the collection, and we hope you are, all you need to do is email your photo to msdismail@missouri.edu with the name of the location and a brief, three(ish) sentence description of why the location is important to you. You can send us as many photos as you’d like, though if we end up going over the 200 photo mark, we will have to make some cuts.
