Marceline, Missouri (PRWEB) December 03, 2015
Walsworth is proud to announce it has become the exclusive provider of the digital archives of The Numismatist, the official magazine of the American Numismatic Association (ANA). Since 1888, The Numismatist has educated and inspired coin and paper money enthusiasts around the world. Now, through this strategic partnership between Walsworth and the ANA, numismatists can access and search every issue ever published any time and on any device.
“The American Numismatic Association is excited to provide this additional benefit to its members and the hobby community,” said Kim Kick, executive director of the national non-profit association. “Digitization of the complete library of The Numismatist has long been our dream. We’re pleased to offer it to the many collectors, researchers and scholars who will benefit from the information contained in the pages of this historic publication.”
Digital-content specialist Exact Editions of London, England, is providing the platform that gives more than 24,000 American Numismatic Association members access to the archive.
“Exact Editions is delighted to partner with Walsworth to build this deep, compelling and completely searchable digital archive. We look forward to building additional cross platform archives with Walsworth, and are excited about working with the ANA to bring this valuable resource to its members,” said Daryl Rayner, managing director of Exact Editions.
Walsworth worked closely with ANA to aggregate all of the print issues from the ANA library and private collectors, managed the entire digitization process, and worked with Exact Editions and ANA to create a customer experience that allows ANA members to access this benefit. In addition, Walsworth and Exact Editions will continue to provide user experience enhancements and member support to ANA.
ANA members will have access to the new digital library of The Numismatist beginning Dec. 1, 2015.
“We are proud that ANA has entrusted Walsworth to digitize its respected library of The Numismatist. Further, Walsworth is excited about our partnership with Exact Editions and the opportunity to bring this service to other magazines and journals across the United States,” said Don Walsworth, president of Walsworth. “This is another example of our commitment to help our customers succeed by delivering content through print and integrated channels.”
