The guide to the La Forte collection was produced in 1996 with funding provided by the United States Department of Education grant Title II-C, "Strengthening Research Library Resources: The French Revolution Collections at Cornell University: a Retrospective Conversion and Preservation Project."

The La Forte Collection was purchased from the bookseller Lucien Scheler of Paris in 1967 with the help of a donation by Arthur Dean.

The La Forte Web site (guide and exhibit) was conceived by Jean V. Callahan and implemented by Noni Korf Vidal in 1998. In 2000 the Guide was encoded in EAD by Mireille Lee. Early in 2004 the Web site was redesigned by Kari Smith.
