MUSIT (museum IT) is a collaborative initiative aimed at managing and disseminating digitised museum collections. The initiative is funded by the universities of Bergen, Oslo, Stavanger, Tromsø and Trondheim and their affiliated museums. MUSIT consists of a board, two coordinating groups, one for natural and one for cultural history, and a service unit. The board makes the overall policy decisions based on the recommendations of the coordinating groups.

The service unit, named DUG, develops collections management software and manages the day-to-day operations of MUSIT. DUG is part of the Digital Collections Management Group at the central computing services at the University of Oslo. To contact MUSIT or DUG, please e-mail
