These regularly published catalogs should all have ISSNs. Do any of them? Perhaps we could do the scholarly community a favor by recommending this.
The 'correct' solution would be for the ANS library to offer Z39.50 searching. That is unlikely to happen. It might be possible for a 3rd party to write a "shim" for Z39.50 author and title queries that called the ANS library search page and screen-scraped the results.
These are tough things for library catalogs, because their titles may well change over time, along with place, etc. The way libraries handle this is to establish a "uniform title" that will stand for the whole series, no matter how the details change, and then create "added entries" (catalog pointers) from other versions of the title (maybe "auction catalogue" changed to "auction catalog" and then to "mail bid catalog", etc.).
I just took a look at the ANS catalog; here's a representative CNS entry. It looks to me like these are "amateur" records rather than real library catalog records; i.e., they aren't MARC-based. I believe (though I could be wrong) that Z39.50 generally sits on top of MARC, and so if ANS just has a homebrew database, then Z39.50 access wouldn't be possible. (I'd be glad to be corrected.)
Sounds like we need some professional catalogers to construct some solid MARC records for these titles and insert them into a research library catalog, so others can "copy catalog" (what we do in LT) from those records. The trick there is that to generate good uniform title records you really ought to have the whole series in front of you so you can document exactly how it has changed over time. Very few libraries will be in this position.
A brief note on the "North American Serials Interest Group" Newsletter describes the work the (now-former) catalogers does at the ANS library: We don’t use LCSH, even though we follow AACR2 and MARC21; instead, we have a homegrown thesaurus geared specifically to the complexities of numismatics and the needs of our users. We are not tied into OCLC or RLIN. Cataloging is done on a stand-alone system called MARC Magician, which loads into our locally created OPAC." http://www.nasig.org/newsletters/newsletters.2005/05may/05may_title_changes.html .
(I don't know what some of the acronyms mean.)
Anyone interested in the complexities of auction catalog titles over time will enjoy the Fitzwilliam Museum's list of auction catalogs. They have 30,000 catalogs in seven huge text files. They don't acquire catalogs with just modern coins but they are nearly complete for ancient and medieval. Their format makes it easy to see a catalog series at a glance rather than searching through ANS for individual records. http://www.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/coins/library/salescatalogue/
So it sounds like ANS does have their collection MARC-cataloged, but what they have is a homebrew OPAC (Online Public Access Catalog). And it makes sense that they have a specialist set of subject headings, but if these are entered into the standard MARC fields then they should be retrievable with other software. OCLC and RLIN are library consortia; OCLC is the main source behind worldcat, which is the basis of the "find in a library" feature in LT. In other words, the ANS catalog is really isolated from the global library network. I don't know what is involved in getting Z39.50 access to a catalog; it may be built in to the ANS software or it may not.
I haven't checked to see if the Fitzwilliam library is in the Cambridge University catalog.
The coins are not all released at once.
