The library would like to extend its thanks to Mary Rizzo, Ana Robles, and Rutgers University who assisted in scanning and metadata for the Samuel Berg collection, through a grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission called "Newark's Built Environment During Urban Renewal: Digitizing the Berg Photos."

The library would also like to thank Peter Blackmer, of the University of Massachusetts and "Rise up North Newark", who assisted in metadata and scanning of some African-American content.

The library expresses thanks to Jose DaSilva and the archives of the City of Newark who donated digitized maps for web display.
