ANS LIBRARY CATALOG NAMING CONTEST DEADLINE FEBRUARY 15, 2010

American Numismatic Society Librarian Elizabeth Hahn submitted the following announcement for publication in our December 13, 2009 issue. The contest is still open. One E-Sylum reader privately suggested naming the catalog after the Numismatic Bibliomania Society (NBS) or the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG). If anyone is thinking of submitting a formal entry but hasn't yet, please do so soon. -Editor

2004 ANS Groves medal rev In 2010, the ANS Library will launch a new and improved library catalog. This catalog needs a name. I would like to ask for the creative minds of the numismatic community to help with this, and so I am initiating a contest for the best name of our new catalog. The person who submits the name that is chosen will win a $100 ANS gift certificate, which can be used for a wide variety of ANS purchases, including publications, library services, membership, and more!

The contest deadline is February 15, 2010, so make sure to get your ideas in before then! To submit your entry, please email the contest address ( contest at numismatics.org ) or mail your entry to "Attn: Library Contest" at the ANS headquarters in New York City. You can submit as many entries as you like. No phone calls please, as submissions must be made in writing.

For examples of other names and possible inspiration, you might look at what other libraries have done, such as BobCat (NYU library), Corsair (Morgan Library and Museum), Ambrosia (Blegen Library), etc. We are looking for something short and sweet but creative, with obvious relevance to the ANS collections.

E-Sylum readers are a creative bunch - you helped me name my Wayne's Words column and The E-Sylum itself. So please give this one a try! -Editor
