HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — A mobile app developed and run by a Marshall University professor and his students is being touted as the gold standard for what collegiate humanities projects should be by the National Humanities Alliance.

The Clio app picks up a user’s location anywhere in the United States and tells him or her about the history and culture that surrounds him or her. A growing database includes information on museums, art galleries, monuments, sculptures and historical sites. The app has been used in every state in the country, and entries are added every day.
