The making of the Sloane database was made possible by a generous donation from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The digitisation and processing of the images was carried out by Clare Bradley Smith, who has also been responsible for the design of the web pages.

Extensive research into the Sloane volumes was carried out by Dennis Adams and data entry has been undertaken by Tiffane Bates.

Anne Hume designed and developed the search pages for the database, and Rob Huxley has acted as overall Project Manager.
