BIBLIOGRAPHY HELP SOUGHT

"I just finished looking at the E-Sylum web-site - very impressive, but I do have a few comments."
He found the question of membership fee confusing, but I think I cleared this up for him - subscriptions to The E-Sylum are free to all, and independent of NBS membership.
He would also
"be interested in talking to people regarding publications I am looking for, questions I have regarding publications, and projects I am currently working on (including a new bibliography of Canadian numismatics - which has already been a five year project to date and the text currently stands at 314 pages and covers every field of Canadian numismatics, and I can foresee another three to five years to go yet). A bit like a jail term unfortunately.
But as I keep hitting stumbling blocks, I try to correspond with individuals to assist me in overcoming various hurdles,including access to or reviews of various publications including auction catalogues. Post has proven to be both slow and unreliable. Some people just don't bother to respond at all. You know how it is.
It seems to me that a list of names and email addresses would be beneficial to assist serious collectors and researchers, especially those not living in the continental U.S. who obviously can't attend A.N.A. conventions, etc. and have difficulty in contacting other N.B.S. members.
I would be very interested in corresponding with you or other members of the N.B.S. who may have an interest in Canadian numismatics or the bibliography project, especially if there is a potential that I could possibly find answers to questions that will arise from time to time."
I explained our policy against revealing subscriber names and email addresses without permission, but invited him to continue submitting questions for posting in upcoming issues of The E-Sylum. Those wishing to contact Mr. Atchison can reach him at email@example.com
