Title: Internet Resources for coins in this category
Post by: ChrisHagen on August 12, 2013, 01:45:51 PM
Greetings,

I thought I would post the resources that I myself use and know of, in hope that more people will share resources that I did not know of, to help me in future searches. I want to move from being a person who posts "please help with ID" to being the person who answers those threads with an ID.


Please add more if you are able to. Thank you!

Hello Chris,

For our collection of resources, we use the follwing boards:

Printed material (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/board,43.0.html) (note the bibliographies)
Useful links (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/board,44.0.html)
Other resources (http://www.worldofcoins.eu/forum/index.php/board,41.0.html)

Since your post uses at least two of the above, it is difficult to move it in the right place. Also, you'll see that there is some duplication with existing threads. Maybe you can copy/paste appropriate links to the right board? Thanks in advance.

Peter

Hi,
I felt that a thread with resources specific to the coins discussed of this board would be helpful.

If you disagree I will see if any of the links I posted here are missing from the threads you posted, then post them to there.

I was avoiding printed material specifically to have an on-hand list of resources available from any device with an internet connection. I will check out the links and see if there are any good ones that I missed!

I recently removed much information from one of our research sites because of misuse of copyright . This was rather sad given the cost of setting up the site and the large amount of new information that was about to be posted. The actions of three people has caused this but they said they would do it and they did.

A free resource can still be copyright. A free resource that is copyright does mean that you can copy and post that resource across the internet at your pleasure. At least this time it has not stopped research just pushed it quietly underground and the resource will be limited in future.
