American Numismatic Society

The American Numismatic Society is dedicated to the study and public appreciation of coins, currencies, medals, and other related objects. Since its founding in 1858, the Society has assembled a permanent collection with over 800,000 objects dating from 650 BCE to the present and a numismatic library. These resources are used to support publications of books and periodicals, lectures, academic seminars, and exhibitions.


American Society of Papyrologists

Established in 1961 to further the study of ancient Greek and Latin papyri, the Society supports research in the field, the teaching of the discipline, and international cooperation by scholars. It publishes The Bulletin of the American Society of Papyrologists, the only North American journal in the field of papyrology, and three book series. It also organizes annual panel sessions at national conferences, and sponsors institutes and workshops.

Founded in 1986, the Center is the only comprehensive research facility for the study of Greek and Latin inscriptions and manuscripts in the United States.
