The E-Sylum:  Volume 2, Number 26, June 27, 1999, Article 2

COIN WORLD PROFILE   

   Subscriber William T.Gibbs, News Editor for Coin World,  
   published a nice article on The E-Sylum in the July 5, 1999  
   issue,  which hit the streets this week (page 88). To quote  
   the first few paragraphs:   

   "It might seem unusual that an organization of collectors  
   who love the feel and smell of old books would sponsor  
   a weekly online journal, but is not at all out of the ordinary  
   for the Numismatic Bibliomania Society.   

   NBS does embrace the traditional publishing field.  It  
   publishes The Asylum,  a traditional magazine featuring  
   articles on numismatic books, auction catalogs and other  
   forms of numismatic literature.   

   However it also embraces the World Wide Web and the  
   Internet by publishing a weekly online journal, The E-Sylum.   

   Online subscribers subscribe to The E-Sylum, which arrives  
   weekly (every Sunday) in their e-mail. Each online issue  
   features research tips, requests for research help, comments  
   from subscribers and other useful information."   

   As examples of The E-Sylum's content and usefulness, the  
   article mentions David Cassel's pattern request, Russ Logan's  
   assistance in finding the book on Patriotic Civil War envelopes  
   for Pete Smith, and finally, our discussion on John Leonard  
   Riddell.  "the help provided from the request May 2 has proven  
   invaluable in researching the feature which will be published  
   later this year in Coin World.   

   The immediacy of the Internet and World Wide Web appears  
   to be one of the strongest benefits of this online journal.  
   Members can communicate with each other instantaneously via  
   e-mail."   

   Finally, the article lists the address of our web site and that  
   of Dave Hirt, our Secretary-Treasurer.   Thanks to Mr. Gibbs  
   and Coin World, we've gotten some marvelous publicity.  Let's  
   hope the article attracts some more good subscribers.
