The Hilgardia Project gratefully acknowledges the donors whose generosity has made it possible to begin scanning and posting this vital work and the following individuals who donated their time and expertise: the Hilgardia Fundraising Committee, chaired by Deborah Golino, with members Walt Bentley, Peter Berck, Tim Paine, Gary Sposito and Frank Zalom; Axel Borg (Librarian, Biological/Agricultural Sciences Reference Department) of the UC Davis University Library for arranging the loan of a complete set of Hilgardia for scanning; and Jared Campbell (Metadata Librarian) for provided XML technical assistance. Numerous staff in Communication Services and Information Technology coordinated, programmed, tested and completed the project, including Dave Krause, Adam Lum, Carol Lopez, Maria Munoz, Ben Reed, Will Suckow and Janet White.
Targeted support for this initial collection came from the Lodi Winegrape Commission, in acknowledgment of the tremendous importance of the monographs to the wine and grape industry today," said Deborah Golino, committee chair.
