NUMISMATIST ISSUES SOUGHT FOR DIGITIZATION

Numismatist September 1892 Barbara Gregory, editor of THE NUMISMATIST, is asking bibliophiles to help provide specific volumes and individual copies of The Numismatist for the American Numismatic Association's 127-volume digitization project currently underway.

Following is a list of the issues/volumes the ANA needs. (Partial volumes will be accepted.)

1894
1896
1897
1898 (September issue only needed)
1900
1901 (May issue only needed)
1902
1903 1928 numismatist
1904
1905
1906
1907
1916
1917
1918

1920
1921
1923

Numismatist january 2013 cover The ANA's Dwight N. Manley Numismatic Library has examples of these early editions, but most are bound and/or reside in its Rare Book Room.

Gregory is requesting a loan of these volumes/issues only. "If possible, we would like to remove the staples from the (predominantly) saddle-stitched binding and reassemble them once the scans are complete. This procedure will be carried out by our magazine printer's experienced staff," she explains.

"We realize that surrendering these valuable issues is a difficult decision, but the end product will benefit the entire numismatic community," says Gregory. The digital archives will be completed later this year.

E-Sylum readers who can help are invited to contact Editor Barbara Gregory, 818 N. Cascade Ave., Colorado Springs, CO 80903-3279, phone 719-482-9831, e-mail gregory@money.org .

It was some ten years ago that a commercial "Electronic Numismatist" project was announced, then faded away (see article link below).

This is a marvelous and long-overdue project, and a nice companion to the recent news of a similar project at the American Numismatic Society to digitize the American Journal of Numismatics. This digital archive from the ANA itself, together with the ANS and Newman Numismatic Portal archives will create a great resource for collectors and researchers. So, who can help? -Editor
