All libraries begin with collection contributions and curation. This library is the amalgamation of resources from an array of contributors, including artists, scholars, non-profit organizations, and curators. The library would not have been possible without the many citation donations, suggestions and feedback received from these contributors. AWE would like to express deep appreciation for the time and donations of the contributors.
