Dick Johnson submitted this request for researchers to list the top web sites and pages used in their work. This could be interesting!
As a numismatic writer, what are the websites you use most often for researching data, fact checking or gathering background information? Curious minds -- that is, other numismatic writers -- would like to know. Are you using the full spectrum of websites available in your numismatic writing?
I would like to see a survey of E-Sylum readers, who are, for the most part, the major writers in the field. We are blessed with a large number of serious websites compiled by competent writers who have provided these for our use. But are we overlooking some which we should be aware of?
Let's conduct a survey. List the top ten websites you use in your writing and research. I would even welcome those outside the field of numismatic, like a calendar of a year in which you are writing about. Is it useful to know the day of the week in your discussion?
The obvious web pages are on NBS website itself. I use Pete Smith's American Numismatic Biographies extensively. Martin Gengerke's listing of American auction catalogs is also another vital source.
I would be willing to list my top ten. Would you list your top ten websites?
