The E-Sylum:  Volume 2, Number 27, July 4, 1999, Article 4

BIBLIOGRAPHY HELP SOUGHT  

   Darryl A. Atchison writes:  "I just finished looking at the 
   E-Sylum web-site - very impressive, but I do have a few 
   comments."  

   He found the question of membership fee confusing, but I 
   think I cleared this up for him - subscriptions to The E-Sylum 
   are free to all, and independent of NBS membership.  

   He would also "be interested in talking to people regarding 
   publications I am looking for, questions I have regarding 
   publications, and projects I am currently working on (including 
   a new bibliography of Canadian numismatics - which has 
   already been a five year project to date and the text currently 
   stands at 314 pages and covers every field of Canadian 
   numismatics, and I can foresee another three to five years to 
   go yet).  A bit like a jail term unfortunately.  

   But as I keep hitting stumbling blocks, I try to correspond 
   with individuals to assist me in overcoming various hurdles, 
   including access to or reviews of various publications including 
   auction catalogues.   Post has proven to be both slow and 
   unreliable.  Some people just don't bother to respond at all. 
   You know how it is.  

   It seems to me that a list of names and email addresses would 
   be beneficial to assist serious collectors and researchers, 
   especially those not living in the continental U.S. who obviously 
   can't attend A.N.A. conventions, etc. and have difficulty in 
   contacting other N.B.S. members.  

   I would be very interested in corresponding with you or other 
   members of the N.B.S. who may have an interest in Canadian 
   numismatics or the bibliography project, especially if there is a 
   potential that I could possibly find answers to questions that 
   will arise from time to time."  

   I explained our policy against revealing subscriber names and 
   email addresses without permission, but invited him to continue 
   submitting questions for posting in upcoming issues of The 
   E-Sylum.  Those wishing to contact Mr. Atchison can reach 
   him at cashs@iol.ie
