The following news release was issued by the Amercan Numismatic Society:
The American Numismatic Society (ANS) is delighted to announce the
debut of its new website, Numismatics.org, which features improved
navigation, search capability, and user interface to help numismatists
explore, learn, shop, and conduct research with ease.
The newly-launched website maintains the same domain name as the
previous site, and allows for all the same information to be accessed.
In addition, this enhanced website puts the piloting of information in
the hands of the user in a clear and organized manner. The ANS site
enables access to the Digital Library, historical archives in the
Archer database, the library catalogue under DONUM, and a link to the
ANS collection in MANTIS, which is continually being uploaded with new
images of currency. It also provides direct access to the Society’s
individualized databases, including OCRE, CRRO, and PELLA to name a few.

Of particular note is the updated section on the ANS
Magazine, which enables visitors to view the e-edition of a recent
issue which contains enlargeable images and active links to the ANS
collection on MANTIS in addition to live links to other sites
mentioned in the articles. This serves as a preview of a benefit of
membership – only those who are members of the ANS will have access to
the e-versions of each current and recent issues. All magazine issues
from 2002–2013 are now available as Open Access here. The ANS Store has also been given a new
look, yet still allows users to browse by title of publication or
subject matter. Online publication purchases will be shipped by
Casemate Academic/Oxbow, book distributor for the ANS. Many older
publications are also available for free as Open Access.
“The new ANS website was an undertaking a long time in the making,
and we are proud to have it live for our members, friends, and anyone
with an interest in numismatics,” Andrew Reinhard, ANS Director of
Publications, said. “Our goal is for this enhanced site to be inviting
for newcomers, amateur numismatists, seasoned academics and
researchers, and everyone in between, and we hope visitors will return
to enhance their knowledge, as we continually update the site with new
information, links, images, and other items to aid in our advancement
of numismatic exploration.”
