The American Numismatic Society is moving forward with its commitment to make its earlier publications available to the public electronically. The following appeared in the February 2015 ANS .
In a sweeping effort to make its older and out-of-print publications available to the public as Open Access, the ANS has partnered with HathiTrust, a large, collaborative repository of digital content from research libraries and publishers that includes content digitized by Google Books and Internet Archive. Over 10 million volumes are available to research and read.
Scans of nearly 550 ANS titles – including the American Journal of Numismatics, Numismatic Literature, Numismatic Notes and Monographs – already have a home on HathiTrust, OCR-scanned earlier by the Google Books project. By granting permission, all of these scans will become fully readable and downloadable to anyone who wants them under a Creative Commons license. This means that these ANS publications can be used for personal reading, research, and academic publication just so long as the ANS is cited as the source.
The ANS’s full texts will be available for use over the next few weeks as those titles are activated on HathiTrust’s website. For more information contact Andrew Reinhard, Director of Publications, at email@example.com.
