The Numismatic Search API, is an open source project that evolved from the University of Virginia Art Museum Numismatic Collection. With this API, users can interact programmatically with the American Numismatic Society's MANTIS interface to search, sort, and browse data in the collection.
The API is based on queries to the ANS's Solr search index and can be modified based on user needs. A wide range of search operators and parameters are available to enable highly customized queries. This API operates over HTTP, and uses KML and Atom response formats.
Numishare is an open source suite of applications for managing digital cultural heritage artifacts, with a particular focus on coins and medals. It is developed and maintained by the American Numismatic Society and employed for its online collection. The architecture of the application is built upon an XML foundation. Coins and medals are described in an XML adaptation of NUDS, the Numismatic Database Standard. Other artifacts are encoded in VRA Core 4.0. The adherence to common library/archive/museum standards and best practices ensures the long-term sustainability and curation of the data.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically,
once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change.
As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset,
we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all
activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb.
If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way,
the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
