Many of our colleagues contributed to the original exhibition and the digital exhibition. We wish to acknowledge the efforts of the entire staff of The Bancroft Library, and in particular Theresa Salazar, Curator of Western Americana, and Anthony Bliss, Curator of Rare Books.

Gillian Boal, Book Conservator, Nancy Harris, Paper Conservator, and the staff of Library Conservation Services performed all conservation work for the nine millionth volume, and contributed photographs and descriptions of their work for the digital exhibition.

Library Photographic Services staff digitized the original materials, and Cathy Dinnean and Mary Scott of the Library Graphics Office provided invaluable assistance in the preparation of the original exhibition.

In addition, the Tebtunis Papyri/APIS Project generously provided a flatbed scanner to assist in the digitization of selected images.
