I'm very glad to hear that the Archives would like to host this
content. I hope you will not only collect the content, but also
present it on the Web.
Here's my suggestion: Ask Academic Technology Services to let you
take over the Pathfinder currently at
http://keywords.msu.edu/viewpathfinder.asp?id=7 . They can either
give you direct control of that content, or, when you get a suitable
History of Michigan State University page up, they can make the
keyword "history" from the MSU home page point to what you've put
I'm heartened to learn that Archives will take up putting MSU history
on the Web.
