Howard Daniel submitted these thoughts and a request for an electronic membership in the Numismatic Bibliomania Society. Perhaps this could be an agenda item for the upcoming NBS Board meeting at the Philadelphia ANA show.
In the past few years, I have been spending at least 50% of my time away from my home that is near my Dunn Loring post office box. This away time will be greatly increased this year because I am going to be living in my home in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) for half the year starting in October, instead of my usual three months of the year. And when I am back in the USA, I will be away for at least half my time. This means I will be near my post office box for a total of only about 90 days per year, and the mail will just piles up. I have found I do not have time to read everything and just trash most of it.
In the past year, I have been changing my subscriptions and journals to emailed digital versions instead of hardcopy so I can read them on the road in the USA and overseas. For those subscriptions that do not have digital versions I am allowing them to lapse.
What I would like to see is for the NBS to send an emailed dues notice and a credit card or PayPal payment. But I also need to see The Asylum be sent to me via an emailed digital version, and the ballots for the elections. Can the NBS officers and directors get these done? I am sure I am not the only member who would like to see these options.
