The project is a collaborative effort by Madison Public Library staff and library volunteers. Thanks to Bill Barrow, and the staff at the Michael Schwartz Library at Cleveland State University for their outstanding help and encouragement with this project.

Special thanks to Kent State MLIS candidate Katy Farrell, who scanned, uploaded, and processed a tremendous number of photos during the summer of 2017, and created documentation and set standards for library staff and volunteers to continue the work.

Also, special thanks to Gazette Newspapers for allowing the library to digitize their printed works and to Charles Herroon for providing the library with his collection of the "Do You Remember" column from the Madison Press.
