A Teaching with Technology grant from Western Michigan University provided funding for release time for the author, assistance with coding, and software. Joe Reish and Bettina Meyer lent the support of the University Libraries, as did Maria Perez-Stable.
We would like to acknowledge our debit to Judith Arnold and Patricia VanderMeer as pioneers, as well as to the outstanding example of TILT, from which we drew inspiration. TILTs Open Publication License opened up new possibilities for interactivity in Searchpath.

Media Production at WMU created the the Flash pieces for information literacy in Module 1 and where to find indexes (Module 4), as well as the opening page graphic. Special thanks to Sarah Welshman and Joe Hawver, students extraordinaire, who patiently lent themselves to this endeavor. We would also like to acknowledge Brandon Meissner, as well as Aedin Clements, David Isaacson, Patricia VanderMeer, and Laurel Grotzinger for their editing suggestions.
