Acknowledgements

I would like to thank the insights and guidance from colleagues Robert Povelones and Eric Holter at Cuberis proved invaluable, and I am hopeful to collaborate with them on additional functionality for this tool!  I am also grateful for Alexa McCarthy, formerly of The Leiden Collection, for additional access to the IIIF work on the WordPress site.  I must thank David Beaudet for his cheerful guidance and feedback as I learned more with IIIF (thanks for your patience, Dave!), as well as former NGA colleagues. Last, but certainly not least, the stellar editorial team at JHNA—Heidi Eyestone, Jacquelyn Coutré, and Alison Kettering—as well as the amazing conservator and art historian Melanie Gifford have made this project what it is. I have also appreciated collaborating with our programmer, Morgan Schwartz of Studio Rainwater. I have learned so much collaborating with this team and it has been a delight to have a hand in furthering the efforts of the journal.
