Tuesday's issue of the American Numismatic Society Enews (April 2010) unveiled the winner of the ANS Library Catalog naming contest. Here's the complete announcement.
The winner of the Library Catalog Naming Contest has been decided! The chosen submission was given by Andrew G. Scott, Assistant Professor of Classics at Hendrix College in Arizona. Andrew was a recent participant in the ANS Summer Seminar in Numismatics during 2009. Well done, Andrew! And thank you again to all who entered. We had some fantastic entries overall.
The new catalog will be called DONUM. This is short for Database of NUmismatic Materials. The word "donum" is also Latin for "gift", and as a free resource, this online catalog is our gift to the world. The new online catalog is still very much being developed and we thank you in advance for your patience. A trial version of the new catalog is available at present at the following:
While the catalog has been updated to contain even the most recently cataloged items, we are still working out a number of technical issues associated with making searches more efficient. Updates about this ongoing progress will be forthcoming.
