MESH is a collaborative effort of the MSU College of Arts and Letters (CAL) and the MSU Libraries focused on the futures of digital scholarly publishing. MESH is a collaborative, agile, open-source team that supports the growth of both the developer and the community facilitation networks needed to enable 21st-century digital work in the areas of digital humanities and digital scholarly publishing. 

MESH’s primary values are openness, community, and equity; as a result the work done by MESH privileges open-source, academy-owned, collaboratively developed, transparently governed, and highly interoperable systems. We operate within the broader scope of the College of Arts and Letters values of Equity, Openness and Community and MSU’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.
