AMERICAN NUMISMATIC SOCIETY PUBLICATION HISTORY

American Numismatic Society archivist Joe Ciccone submitted the following note about a new section of the ANS web site on the society's publications. -Editor

I recently finished a website on the history of the Society's publications program: www.numismatics.org/Archives/PublicationHistory

The site (hopefully!) now lists every publication the ANS has issued since 1858. For monograph series there are brief descriptions of why each was created and what was necessary for a work to qualify for publication in that particular series. For periodicals, there are brief descriptions of each series, along with date ranges for when each was published.

The site's been in development for a few years now, but I only recently finished adding the last of the monographs. I may be biased but I think it provides a great resource for anyone who either collects ANS publications or is simply interested in the history of the Society's publications program. Admittedly, I did not include a few things like reprints. Otherwise, I think I've captured everything. I'd be curious to learn if your readership knows of any additional publications which should be included.

I also wanted to let you know that I'm leaving the ANS next week, in part because I will be working as the corporate librarian for Standard & Poors and managing what looks to be a fairly substantial library. Before I left, however, I did want to thank you and your readership for all their support during my tenure at the ANS. The feedback I received, either on or offline was very helpful.

I should note that I will still be continuing my consulting business (www.cicconearchives.com in case anyone's interested!)

Thanks again for all your help!

We're sorry to hear that Joe will no longer be working for the ANS, and wish him the best in his new endeavors. -Editor
