CREDITS
I would like to thank Anna Roma, Michael Dalton and David Villano who brought their extraordinary talents to help build the technical side of my library.

Anna Roma and Michael Dalton wrote the Alfafile program that is the foundation of the Mary Ellen Mark Library. David Villano guided us through the development of the computer system as it grew from the tiny Mac Plus.

Diana Haas designed the original version of my site in 2001. Julia Bezgin redesigned the site in 2010. Clara Pereira created the graphic elements in this site. Meredith Lue organized the thousands of files needed for the sites construction. Valerie Junge brought this websites video to life. My husband, Martin Bell, wrote the code and Cooper & Gringo were loyal supporters.

In 1986 I received a Macintosh Plus for working on the book A Day in the Life of America. Inspired by this computer and its ability to display photographs a project was started to catalog my archive. Up until then all of my negatives and prints were stored in legal boxes with little or no reference for access except for one small metal suitcase, painted red, containing strips of my most important negatives clipped to it's original contact sheet.

How easy it seemed back in 1986--all we had to do was assign a number to each picture and scan the entire library of images--innocence is bliss! What seemed so simple turned out to be more than the little Macintosh Plus suggested, but for all the years of work this project has taken it was the brilliance and simplicity of that tiny machine, and its ability to display a picture, that has been this library's inspiration.

Over the years many people have helped build the digital library for which I will be eternally grateful.

The following people managed the Mary Ellen Mark Library. They have also endured the many twists, turns and false starts to make an incalculable contribution in building the digital library.
The following people were interns at the Mary Ellen Mark Library. Without their dedication and generous input of time this library would not exist.
