We also thank the many people whose recommendations and suggestions regarding this collection and materials for inclusion in the collection have enhanced the depth and relevance of the materials. — and a very special “thank you” to Julian Zugazagoitia for sharing his time and expertise of “Art and the Human Spirit” in the opening of this collection. This list of our sponsors and contributors appears as a permanent addition on the Cultural Crossroads website and a sign on the collection itself directs the public to this list. Cultural Crossroads has made a long-term commitment regarding this collection and there are many more books to be added to the collection, as time and funding permit. Cultural Crossroads will, therefore, continue to collect donations to support the collection and future contributors will be added as well.
