SPMC Journal Now Available for Download

The SPMC Board of Governors is pleased to announce that PDFs of the entire history of its bi-monthly journal, Paper Money, are now available to members to download and use for their own personal reference.

Previously, the journal was posted to the society's website and viewable only through an interface that protects the journal from downloads, printing and copying.  This was set up intentionally due to concerns about unlawful reproduction of the journal.

However, it has become an industry standard to post PDFs of publications for members' use.  Several numismatic organizations already make PDFs of their journals available to members, and the practice is seen as valuable by their membership.
The leadership of SPMC desires to be responsive to member concerns, and after weighing the issue, the board has approved the posting of PDFs.  SPMC would like to remind its members that the website Terms of Use clearly state that electronic materials may be downloaded only for personal use, and may not be redistributed to third parties.
A link to download a PDF is located at the upper right corner of each individual journal page, above the viewer window.  Members must be logged in to access this page.
SPMC provides a variety of benefits to its members, downloadable PDFs being the latest addition.  If you are not yet a member, please join us for the best that the hobby has to offer.
