Judaica Librarianship

Cataloging Heresy, the expanded proceedings of the 1991 Congress for Librarians held at St. John's University, addresses the issue of shared, homogeneous cataloging from the viewpoints of professionals in various library and information technology settings. This review discusses the papers presented from the perspective of their implications for access to and description of Judaica materials.
