Abstract: This paper will present the Online Coinage of the Roman Empire (OCRE) project based at the American Numismatic Society, funded under a three-year NEH Preservation and Access grant awarded in 2014. The project aims, using principles of Linked Open Data to provide a multilingual reference and cataloguing tool aimed at curators and archaeologists, while at the same time providing the framework for amalgamation of specimens of Roman coinage from a distributed set of numismatic collections. The presentation will briefly demonstrate aspects of OCRE's functionality, outline the nature and extent of the collaboration, note the way in which this resource has been in technical and practical terms, and offer the audience guidance in how they and others may participate in the project.
