Abstract

The CHRR database began life in 1988 and has grown from 24 to over 700 hoards. It has been successfully moved between software packages and has been used as a teaching resource as well as for research. Over the last year the database has been incorporated into the online numismatic databases hosted by the American Numismatic Society. This paper addresses the issues raised in turning a long-term personal research database into a publicly available resource database built on the principles of linked open data. We will address both the technical challenges and the problem of the expectations of the target audience.
