Thesis Open Access
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 This aspect of documentation is particularly important since many earlier digital numismatic projects have gone unpublished.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.
