Giles Bransbourg, Adjunct Curator of Roman Coins, American Numismatic Society, Moderator: Harlan Berk………
A new program to digitize the Roman coins in the ANS Collection will begin later this year, the Online Coins of the Roman Empire(OCRE) project, Co-directed by Dr. Andrew Meadows of the ANS and Professor Roger Bagnall of ISAW and managed by Dr. Gilles Bransbourg.
OCRE is a ground breaking initiative to create an online reference and cataloguing tool for coinage of the Roman Empire. Through its use of a Linked Open Data model, OCRE will provide full descriptions and illustrations of the 45,000 different types of Roman Imperial Coinage, as well as providing a union catalogue of specimens held in major collections.
Giles Bransbourg explains the how the program will work and how scholars and collectors will benefit from the information that will become available.
