American Numismatic Society librarian Elizabeth Hahn writes:
I have been working with a librarian in Holland to establish a support network to facilitate exchanging information, ideas, and publications within the numismatic library community.
Last week during the International Numismatic Congress in Glasgow, we officially established the International Numismatic Libraries' Network (INLN) and already have 25 interested libraries. We are very much still in the early stages of organization, but hope to have a website up shortly, so members and the community can see what our goals are and submit their comments and suggestions.
Elizabeth forwarded the following announcement. We'll look forward to following the progress of this important new organization.
A new international network of scientific numismatic libraries has been established -- the International Numismatic Libraries' Network (INLN).
The aims will be to coordinate common efforts (for ex. in developing cataloguing standards) and quite generally to distribute and to exchange information, ideas, and publications.
At the beginning of 2009, all ICOMON members were contacted and a survey regarding their information and library situation was sent out. Several numismatic librarians and ‘information caretakers' responded and some 25 libraries world-wide were interested in becoming a member of the network. As a result, the INLN was formally founded at the International Numismatic Congress in Glasgow (2nd and 3rd September 2009).
A website that summarizes the mission and goals of the Network is currently being developed and will be announced shortly.
