Many months in the making, the new web site for our organization has been rolled out to the Internet. It now has a look and feel modeled after the new graphic version of The E-Sylum.
Actually, it was the web site redesign that came first, but due to some delays the newsletter was launched first. Most of the credit belongs to Bruce Perdue, who devoted many volunteer hours to porting over our old content to the new format.
Thanks also to the NBS board, which last year authorized a large expenditure to commission a design firm to create the templates for the site. And as always, thanks also go to John Nebel who hosts the site for free on his servers; he and Susie Nulty devoted time as well to install the Wiki and update various templates and programs.
The Wiki is a section of the site devoted to member-supplied content. Here is where you'll find the NBS Numismatic Bibliography, a discussion of numismatic literature types, numismatic research projects and links to other noncommercial numismatic web sites. Contributions are welcomed and encouraged.
The site has all the information you'd expect to find for an organization like ours - our constitution & bylaws, club history, officers, contact information, membership applications, club events, awards, etc. There is information about our print journal, The Asylum, and a complete archive of all back issues of The E-Sylum, over 10,000 pages in all.
But wait, there's more... there are also links to our E-Sylum Flickr image library (over 1,200 pictures and growing weekly), and a new way to subscribe to The E-Sylum - the RSS feed. You can also bookmark and share the NBS web site on your Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter pages.
Lastly, the new site includes rate sheets for advertising. Hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars have gone into this revamped site, and we hope the numismatic community will show its support, even in these difficult economic times.
There are ad plans of all shapes, sizes and costs. Numismatic literature dealers, book publishers, coin dealers, clubs and individuals are all welcome. See www.coinbooks.org/sponsors/sponsor_info.html .
Comments and suggestions are welcome. Please give it a test run and let us know what you think. To access the Numismatic Bibliomania Society web site, see:
