Recent Advances in Roman Numismatics
- Gruber, Ethan W.

- This thesis, a hybrid of traditional humanities scholarship and cultural heritage informatics, reflects technical advances
in digital numismatics made between 2011 and 2013. In this regard, this thesis is intended both as a potential guide to contemporary
curators and information technology professionals who desire to make their collections broadly available on the World Wide
Web and as documentation of the state of digital
numismatics in the year 2013. This aspect of documentation is particularly important since many earlier digital numismatic
projects have gone unpublished. It is paramount to
record the thought processes which have informed the intellectual and technical decisions made during the development of these
projects for the benefit of future generations of scholars, curators, and information technologists.
