Elizabeth Hahn (Librarian of the American Numismatic Society) submitted the following notes on web resources for numismatic researchers. Thanks!
I meant to send this last week, so some of these may be repeats, but I wanted to comment on the discussion about websites most used in numismatic research. These are listed in no particular order and are rather a mishmash of webpages I use and webpages that I think are particularly useful (and perhaps less obvious) to others.
-- ANS Databases Library, coins, and archives:
DONUM : Online Library Catalog of ANS Library
MANTIS : Database of Objects in ANS
ARCHER : ARCHival Electronic Resource (ANS Archives)
(In the Archives section, there are actually some very useful bios on ANS officers and staff that can be useful for a quick reference :
OCRE : Online Coins of the Roman Empire
-- Digital collections of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek
One of my recent favorites. They seem to have a good number of older numismatic books that are beautifully scanned at high quality and include every single page of the book (even if there is nothing on the page), which makes it an excellent resource for researchers. You can also occasionally download a pdf version for personal research purposes.
-- Perseus Digital Library
(A great source to key-word search ancient texts and also to search images on works of art, including coins)
-- DLN : Digital Library Numis
(Great for finding recently published articles that authors are willing to share. You need a login to download papers)
There are a number of important journals online, but I don't use them as much because I have such direct access to the print versions, but they are summarized in a list here:
Also not on that list is the Journal of the British Numismatic Society (online up through 2007). The link on the homepage doesn't always seem to work, but the index does:
There are plenty more that I have not listed, but these are some of my most used.
