HOWARD DANIEL VISITS THE F&W PUBLICATIONS LIBRARY

Howard Daniel recently visited the F&W Publications Library
(the former Krause Publications Library).  He writes: "I had
five full days (Monday-Friday) inside the Krause library and
two half days on Saturday and Sunday.  Everyone in the numismatic
department was very helpful to me during my stay. I was lucky
to have the weekends because Colin Bruce and George Cuhaj
came in to do some overtime work.

"The library is on about ten movable units of about 20 foot
long shelves, back to back.  The first unit has a roof leak
and is covered in plastic!  There is legal action holding up
the repairs because the firm which was to have fixed the leak
long ago did not and has not correctly re-repaired it.  One of
the building maintenance men looks in on the leak on a frequent
basis and checks the plastic to make sure the unit is covered.
Ugh!

"Many of the below listed journals, newsletters, periodicals,
auction catalogs and prices lists have been bound in nice
hardbound covers with gold lettering on the spines.  There
are many small groups stacked on different shelves.  There are
also MANY references and other materials scattered throughout
the Numismatic Department cubicles that need to be brought to
the library and properly bound/preserved and shelved.

"A new librarian has been hired and his name is Jonah M. Parsons.
His title is Corporate Resources Administrator.  He has been
told he will be given an assistant (full or part-time?).  His
address is c/o F&W Publications, Inc., 700 East State Street,
Iola, WI 54990-0001.  His telephone is 800-726-9966 x427 and
his fax is 715-445-2294.  His email is Jonah.Parsons@FWPubs.com
and the website is at www.FWPublications.com.  His plans include
barcoding everything in the library, and I told him I would
respond to his requests for assistance in any way I can.

"I also showed him some rare references that should have chips
in them that will set off the exit alarms.  I am hoping that the
inventory of the library is placed online and is available to
all employees and those of us on the outside.  This will allow
many of us to see what is in the library and what we can send
to them to complete their collection, especially in my
specialized areas.

"I have estimated that I have looked through about one-third
of the library during my one week there, so I have two more
weeks more of researching it with its current contents.  I was
given an empty desk next to the library.  I set up my laptop and
printer/scanner/ copier on the desk and used them to record my
research.  My plans are to return again in 2009 when the Central
States Numismatic Society has its convention in Milwaukee."
