Catherine DiTuri of the American Numismatic Society forwarded the official press release about the society's new partnership
with HathiTrust. This is great news for numismatic researchers. -Editor
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
As a result of this partnership, scans of nearly 550 ANS titles – including the American Journal of Numismatics, Numismatic Literature, Numismatic
Notes and Monographs, and stand-alone monographs, have become fully readable and downloadable to anyone who wants them under a Creative Commons,
non-commercial, attribution, share-alike 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. Titles currently in the public domain already have a home on HathiTrust. . These volumes
were OCR-scanned as part of the Google Books project.
HathiTrust, founded in 2008 by 13 universities of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation and the University of California, is a large,
collaborative repository of digital content from research libraries and publishers that includes content digitized by Google Books and Internet
Archive and Microsoft. Millions of volumes are available via HathiTrust’s website (http://www.hathitrust.org). The entire repository can be full-text
