CREDITS for Prototype of Kiosk Interface (Ingenuity: July 2007)

The Euclid Corridor History Project is a public art & history initiative developed by the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority in partnership with Cleveland Public Art and Cleveland State University as part of the redevelopment of Euclid Avenue. This community-based project is being led by faculty members in the Department of History at Cleveland State University, and builds from the work of CSU undergraduate and graduate students, regional K-12 teachers working in conjunction with CSU faculty, community members, and partner institutions. All told, over 200 individuals and institutions have contributed to this prototype web interface by providing stories, taking oral histories, offering research support, and contributing photographs.
