The concept of concurrent exhibitions across the city was first proposed by William Voelkle (Morgan Library); the unifying theme and the idea of a collaborative website were developed at Columbia. These suggestions were warmly received by Carol Falcione and Karen Dobrusky (Barnard College), James McCabe and Patrice Kane (Fordham University), Mitchell Codding and John O'Neill (Hispanic Society of America), and Robert Rainwater and Mimi Bowling (New York Public Library); Claire McCurdy at Union Theological Seminary was forced to decline participation in the physical exhibit since the Burke Library is undergoing renovation until early summer 2002, but agreed that UTS images should join the web exhibit.

Columbia University's Center for New Media Teaching and Learning in the person of Ben Johnston was the sine quo non for this website, which is also the basis for a course site in medieval musicology. The music clips were produced by Columbia's Collegium Musicum, directed by David Lyczkowski. We are grateful to all these people, and to the support staff at these many institutions who have worked to prepare the real and the web exhibits. We also thank the Kress Foundation for a grant that supports many aspects of the dual exhibits.
