Spartan Archive

Welcome to Spartan Archive, the repository for Michigan State University's born-digital institutional administrative records and other electronic records of historical value. Spartan Archive makes the records accessible to the university community and the public through a searchable web interface. At the same time, it provides the records with safekeeping in a trusted preservation environment.

This first phase of the Spartan Archive project, a digital archive for records from MSU's Office of the Registrar, was funded by a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC).

In the second phase, the previously printed Faculty and Staff Directory, Salary Rate of Faculty and Staff; and MSU Budgets, will be captured electronically on an annual basis. The Faculty and Staff Directory is derived from the MSU Data Warehouse and populated by many MSU sources, including MSU Human Resources. [Note: A one year embargo is placed on the display of the directory.] The Salary Rate of Faculty and Staff and MSU Budgets are obtained from the MSU Office of Planning and Budgets.
