Pass It On: Preserving Our Collective and Personal Cultural Heritage was curated by Christine McCarthy, Director of Preservation and Conservation Services for the Yale University Library. 

The physical exhibition that inspired the online version was produced by the Exhibits Support Team of Kerri Sancomb, Sarah Davis, and Megan Czekaj. The personal collections displayed in both the physical and online exhibits were selected by Preservation and Conservation Services staff, who graciously shared their prized possessions and family heirlooms.

The online exhibit was produced by Sarah Davis, MLIS, Exhibits Technician, and would not have been possible without her efforts, both technically and artistically.
