ONLINE INDEXING MARCHES FORWARD  

   Buried in a November 23th Press Release from the 
   American Numismatic Association was something that 
   ought to be welcome news to numismatic bibliophiles, 
   particularly those of us with a primary interest in   
   U.S. numismatics.  "Through the generosity of the Harry  
   Bass Fund ... a new project involves the digital indexing  
   of Coin World and Numismatic News, including the date,  
   title, author, lead paragraph and page number of each  
   article in every issue of the periodicals.  This project  
   was initiated by and is under the oversight of ANA Research  
   Librarian Jane Colvard..."  

   This very subject is something I discussed recently  
   with Robert Van Ryzin of Krause Publications during  
   his visit to Pittsburgh for the P.A.N. show last  
   October.  It is sorely needed, and will be a true  
   boon to numismatic researchers.  So many wonderfully  
   researched and written articles have appeared in the  
   pages of these publications, only to be lost due to the  
   lack of a proper index.  Thanks to the foresight and  
   generosity of the late Harry Bass, an index is finally  
   underway.   Thanks, Harry, Jane, and all involved.
