QUILT INDEX EARNS NATIONAL 'ELECTRONIC REFERENCE' HONORS
The Quilt Index, an MSU Museum partnership project, has earned the 2011 Electronic Reference Award from the Popular Culture Association and American Culture Association (PCA/ACA).
The Quilt Index merges tradition with technology and springs from the work of a unique team of researchers and experts committed to making significant, quilt-related data widely accessible to both scholars and the general public. The Index was developed by the MSU Museum, MSU's MATRIX and the Alliance of American Quilts. Learn more: http://www.quiltindex.org.
