These documents were created during the Winter 2014 term for the UMSI class, Citizen Interaction Design. The goal of the class is to have students working in the City of Jackson to design and create information tools and services in order to increase civic engagement.
Over the course of the term we worked with the Jackson City department Parks, Recreation and Cemeteries. We were presented with an initial administrative and records management problem. Through research and interviews with citizens, we clarified the problem and created two tools to address their problem space. The first solution was to begin the process of digitizing the historical records deed and log books. Second, we created a history hunt pamphlet that encourages exploration of one of Jackson's historic cemeteries.
