4,838 views

Published on

The Newman Numismatic Portal will create the world’s most comprehensive online encyclopedia of American and Colonial coinage, currency, realia, and related correspondence and published literature. Materials from the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society’s coin collections and supporting reference libraries will be digitized along with University collections and made available to an online community of scholars and enthusiasts. Digital content will be stored, curated and preserved by specialists in the Libraries, with corresponding curatorial activities on physical/analog materials. Outreach activities will raise awareness about the research portal and its contents.
