WHERE TO BUY MICROFILMED PERIODICALS

David Ganz writes: "I recently did some online research to see if
microfilm or microfiche of Coin World and Numismatic News was available
and could no longer find University Microfilms which used to do it. Do
you have any addresses or web sites I can contact? I have sets going
back to the 1970s and it is frankly overwhelming. I have bound versions
of 1969 to 1975 or 76 (of Numismatic News, anyway) when I wrote more
actively. The rest is boxed."

[I asked Dan Freidus, who writes: "University Microfilms (UMI) became
Proquest, which spun off most of their microfilm business a few years
ago. The new company is National Archive Publishing.  They do sell
Coin World on microfilm and microfiche (as well as Coinage, Coins,
and Numismatic Scrapbook), but not Numismatic News.  Alas, the prices
seem to work out to around 8 cents per page, so even buying a single
year probably only makes sense for a library."

Dan adds: "I did a bit of searching in library and vendor databases.
It appears that Numismatic News has not been published on microfilm
but that the Library of Congress did microfilm their set.  I donít
know if there is any way to get a copy of their film made."

John Meissner adds: "The American Numismatic Association could use a
complete set of Coin World microfilms, as well as a microfilm reader
- currently any microfilms available at the ANA have to be taken to
Colorado College or the Colorado Springs city library down the street
to be viewed."

Many thanks John and Dave for raising the topic, and to Dan for
his assistance.  This is good for researchers to know. -Editor]
