Authorship & Acknowledgements

This project was written and designed by Hannah Alpert-Abrams, with the support of the Digital Scholarship Office at LLILAS Benson Latin American Studies and Collections at UT Austin. It was completed in December 2015.

The project would not have been possible without the support of Kent Norsworthy, Digital Scholarship Coordinator at LLILAS Benson, and of Mercedes Isabel Salomón-Salazar, expert in Mexican book history and project coordinator at the Biblioteca José María Lafragua. 

Kelly McDonough, Albert Palacios, and James Staig provided instrumental feedback and support during the development process for the Scalar page. Ken Ward, Michael Winship, and Matt Cohen were instrumental in the intellectual development of the project.
