Library Of Congress Classification For Judaica: Recent Changes (1995–1996), Ella Ruderman

Judaica Librarianship

This column covers the additions and changes to the Library of Congress Classification made from January 1995 to December 1996 that are relevant to Judaica libraries. Most of the changes come under classes BM (Judaism), BS (Bible), DS (History of Asia), and PJ (Oriental philology and literature). Of major significance are the following changes: (1) Class number BM198 (Hasidism. Hasidim) received a detailed breakdown, the greatest benefit of which is that it allows librarians to classify together works about individual Hasidic sects, as well as works about Hasidism in individual regions and countries.

Using Women's Studies/ Feminist Periodicals As A Resource For Researching Jewish Women, Phyllis Holman Weisbard May 2000

Using Women's Studies/ Feminist Periodicals As A Resource For Researching Jewish Women, Phyllis Holman Weisbard

Judaica Librarianship

Articles on Jewish women are frequently published in women's studies/ feminist periodicals, where they may not readily come to the attention of Judaica researchers owing in large measure to the difficulties inherent in the indexing of this new interdisciplinary field. From her vantage point as publisher of Feminist Periodicals: A Current Listing of Contents and with a background in Judaica librarianship, the author has taken note of a wealth of material on Jewish women, covering both religious and secular aspects of Jewish women's identity, upbringing, and psyche; the status of Israeli women and feminism in Israel; the Holocaust ...

Indexes To The Journals Of The American Jewish Historical Society: Significance, Coverage, And Format, Bella Hass Weinberg May 2000

Indexes To The Journals Of The American Jewish Historical Society: Significance, Coverage, And Format, Bella Hass Weinberg

Judaica Librarianship

The indexes to the journals of the American Jewish Historical Society are reviewed from the perspective of recent indexing standards. The significance of the journals is great, and they clearly merited indexing, but there are many flaws in the execution of the project. Inconsistency of coverage, poor vocabulary control, a lack of continuation headings, and imprecise filing are among the problems noted. The detailed indexing is praiseworthy, and these tools should be useful to librarians and researchers. References to recent indexing manuals and standards are provided.

The notion that "experience is the best teacher" is examined through interpretation of the informants' experiences in their ...
