Would any of our E-Sylum readers care to take a look at the site and provide a review? The below summary is taken from the site's Introduction. -Editor

Welcome to Digital Library Numis (DLN). This website is dedicated to the study of numismatics and itís main objective is to establish a major portal and open access repository for digital publications regarding coins, medals, monetary history and related subjects.

DLN was initially developed primarily to provide an extensive compilation of many rare, often beautifully illustrated numismatic classics, printed from the 16th until the early 20th century, which can be downloaded or reproduced, without any copyright limitations.

But as more and more authors and publishers nowadays are starting to offer their books and essays for free, you will also find here a continually growing amount of references to contemporary items available online.

DLN is in particular useful as a additional research tool for numismatists, but also for historians, other scholars interested in the field, branch libraries and collectors.
