GARRETT ARCHIVE AT ANS   

   In response to last week's question about the Garrett archives,  
   ANS Executive Director Ute Wartenburg writes: "Yes, this is  
   indeed the Garrett Archive, and we are really thrilled to receive  
   this gift.  It came to us thanks to the hard work of David and  
   Susan Tripp, who have been tireless supporters of the ANS  
   and in particular the library.  They also contributed $1000 for  
   a fund for the Garrett Archive.  Any suggestions what a fund  
   that will hopefully grow could do?   Frank Campbell will write  
   a major piece for the next ANS Newsletter."   

   With the ANS in financial straits, there is no better time to  
   for bibliophiles to support the library with a donation.  Mr.  
   Campbell undoubtedly has a wish list of good uses for library  
   funds.  Two important categories would be preservation and  
   publication.  The library and its new acquisitions must be  
   preserved and protected above all else.  Indexing and  
   publication are next - the library is useless if researchers can't  
   find what they need.  The library's program to convert its  
   catalogue to electronic format is of paramount importance for  
   the 21st century.  It will be a banner day for numismatic  
   research when this newsletter can publish the address of  
   a web page for the ANS library catalogue.
