London—December 3, 2015—The official magazine of the American Numismatic Association (ANA), The Numismatist, has announced today the launch of its complete digital archives. The prestigious monthly publication has for 127 years been the definitive guide for numismatists around the globe, and is now available digitally with every issue published. It is displayed and searchable from cover to cover on the Exact Editions platform, as well as with its own branded Android and iOS apps.
The ANA, book/magazine printer Walsworth, and digital-content specialist Exact Editions have teamed up to present this valuable resource online. More than 1,400 issues comprising 163,000 pages are now easily searchable, shareable and easily referenced by each of the ANA’s 24,000+ members. Association members have for many years received the print edition as part of their membership; they will now be able to easily browse 127 years of back issues at the click of a button.
“We are proud that ANA has entrusted us to digitize its respected library of The Numismatist, which dates back to 1888, so the magazines can be made available to any member, any time, and on any device,” said Don Walsworth, president of Walsworth. “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. This is another example of our commitment to help our customers succeed by delivering content through print and integrated channels.”
First launched in 1888, The Numismatist, has been the essential publication for currency enthusiasts and scholars for over 100 years. This extensive back-file of issues is now available to members at the click of a button. The archives also are a fantastic scholarly resource, available to universities, corporations and other organisations, which can take out a specialist network subscription utilising Exact Editions IP authentication technology.
Daryl Rayner, managing director of Exact Editions, said about the archive launch: “Exact Editions is delighted to partner with Walsworth to build this deep, compelling and completely searchable digital archives. 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 24,000+ members.”
