The successful completion of any project requires a community and we are most grateful to Brock University for providing it. Thanks are due to: Marc Breshuck of the Centre for Pedagogy and Innovation (CPI) for first suggesting Pressbooks as a platform that met the needs of this project; Cal Murgu from the James A. Gibson Library provided guidance and support with obtaining images for each chapter; Koreen McCullogh, Experential Learning Coordinator for the Faculty of Humanities, embraced the project from the start and organized a book launch at the St. Catharines Public Library. We were especially fortunate to receive technical support from Marc Breschuck and Matt Clare of CPI as well as Kyle Mackie of KyleMackie.ca.
I offer a personal thanks here to each contributor for their enthusiasm, vision, and support at every stage of the project, from layout design and peer review to meeting deadlines on time. They demonstrated on a daily basis how collaboration leads to excellence. Finally, many thanks to my co-editors, Shakeel Ahmed and Samantha Fisher. Without their support, this project would never have been completed on time.
Finally, a warm thank you to Abbey Elder, Open Access & Scholarly Communication Librarian at Iowa State University for designing the cover.
