Recent Library Additions and Updates



29 September 2017

I’m sorry to report that this will be the final “What’s New” update for the foreseeable future. After twenty years of what has become a full-time job and then some, it’s time for me to begin spending what remains of my life enjoying the company of friends and family, particularly my wife Loretta, who for far too long has put up with the limitations on our retirement activities imposed by the demands of the Beer Stein Library. Adding impetus to that decision is the fact that income from BSL membership fees has not been nearly sufficient to keep up with advancing technologies, and that the membership programming itself was becoming obsolete. Moreover, it has been impossible to even begin adapting the Library to the wide range of devices now being used to access information on the Internet.

The good news is that there’s enough money available to keep the BSL operating in essentially its current form through the end of 2018. However, beginning sometime during the next week, logins will no longer be required, thereby resolving the membership software obsolescence problem, so access will be free to all interested parties from that point forward. Library content will remain largely unaffected.

To the many members who have provided photos and related information over the years, your contributions have benefitted us all and were much appreciated. My very special thanks to Dagmar Rives, Jerry Berg, John Hataloski and Andre Ammelounx, whose extensive and ongoing support played a huge role in making the Beer Stein Library what it is today. It would not have happened without you.

Of course it’s my hope that the information so carefully compiled over two decades will not disappear permanently after 2018. If you have any thoughts as how that data might be preserved for future generations of collectors, please pass them along to me in an email addressed to [email protected].
