Acknowledgments


The Livingstone Online project team is grateful to the National Endowment for the Humanties (USA), the Wellcome Trust, the British Academy, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for the funding that has made the development of this site possible.

We also wish to acknowledge the extraordinary support we have received from the staff of the David Livingstone Centre, the National Library of Scotland, the Royal Geographical Society, the SOAS Library and the staff of the libraries and archives listed on the Collaborating Institutions page.

In addition, we would like to express our warmest thanks to the individuals listed below and on the acknowledgments pages for our multispectral critical editions of Livingstone's 1870 and 1871 Field Diaries, each of whom – despite the long list – we ask that our users consider as being specially singled out by the Livingstone Online team. In terms of LEAP, we wish particularly to recognize Yaw Asamoah (Indiana University of Pennsylvania) and Kay Walter (University of Nebraska-Lincoln) for their support.

It has been our incredible privilege to collaborate with these individuals and in many, many instances to gain friends through our shared work whom we might not otherwise have even met. We have named a few individuals as honorary members in the project team lists for LEAP and the Livingstone Spectral Imaging Project in an effort to underscore their outstanding contributions to our project.

Finally, Livingstone Online Project Director Adrian S. Wisnicki would like to dedicate his work in developing the present site to Chris Lawrence, Livingstone Online Director Emeritus and Professor Emeritus at University College London, for his unwavering trust and friendship. Without this, everything that followed would not have been possible.
