Judaica Librarianship In The Literature: Assessing The Impact Of Our Journal, Bella Hass Weinberg Sep 1994

Judaica Librarianship In The Literature: Assessing The Impact Of Our Journal, Bella Hass Weinberg

Judaica Librarianship

How does one assess the quality and impact of a journal? Standard indicators of quality include peer review and index coverage; citation analysis has been the standard technique for measuring the impact of a journal. These criteria, along with personal assessments of the impact of Judaica Librarianship, are the subject of this editorial.

Jewish Archival Holdings In The Five New States Of Germany: Creating An Inventory, Robert A. Jacobs Sep 1994

Jewish Archival Holdings In The Five New States Of Germany: Creating An Inventory, Robert A. Jacobs

Judaica Librarianship

The Leo Baeck Institute, New York, is creating a database registering the Jewish archival holdings of repositories in the five new states of Germany. The Colloquium about Problems and Issues in Jewish Archives and Historiography in the Five New States of Germany, led to the shaping of a project utilizing the lnstitute's experience in computer-based cataloging, its expertise in the formulation and expansion of a German-language version of Library of Congress subject headings, and the ground-breaking research surveys of Helmut Eschwege. The project, funded by the German Interior Ministry, Section for Religious Affairs, is administered through the Historische Kornmission ...


Cataloging Heresy: Challenging The Standard Bibliographic Product, Proceedings Of The Congress For Librarians, 1991, With Additional Contributed Papers. Edited By Bella Hass Weinberg. Medford, Nj: Learned Information, 1992. Xii, 217 P., $35., Pamela R. Gillespie Sep 1994

Cataloging Heresy: Challenging The Standard Bibliographic Product, Proceedings Of The Congress For Librarians, 1991, With Additional Contributed Papers. Edited By Bella Hass Weinberg. Medford, Nj: Learned Information, 1992. Xii, 217 P., $35., Pamela R. Gillespie

Judaica Librarianship

Can a single set of centrally supplied descriptive access points, subject headings, and classification numbers meet the needs of all types of library users? 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.


Current Practices And Standards Of Cataloging Hebraica In Rlin, Heidi G. Lerner Sep 1994

Current Practices And Standards Of Cataloging Hebraica In Rlin, Heidi G. Lerner

Judaica Librarianship

Since 1988, approximately 21 institutions have input Hebraica records into RLIN utilizing its Hebrew script capability. These institutions have varying standards for the amount of Hebrew script and Romanization that they provide. Some institutions provide vernacular access only for the core fields that have been defined by RLIN; others provide vernacular access for main and ad d ed entries, notes, and subject headings as well. Some institutions do not provide Romanization for the statement of responsibility or beyond the title proper. These institutions have varying financial, technical, and policy constraints that have contributed to this diversity of procedures for inputting ...


Modifications Made By The New York Public Library To Rlin Hebraica Records, Claire Dienstag Sep 1994

Modifications Made By The New York Public Library To Rlin Hebraica Records, Claire Dienstag

Judaica Librarianship

In its Hebraica cataloging on RLIN, the Jewish Division of the New York Public Library aims for a complete "9114" cataloging category (CC) record, as specified by the Research Libraries Group. Derived records with a CC value of "9994", signifying a lower level of cataloging quality, are enhanced by romanizing field 245 #b, i.e., "other title" information. Field 245 #c (statement of responsibility) can remain unromanized, for the author's name in Latin characters appears in field 1 xx (main entry). Complete collation, appropriate subject headings, added entries and notes deemed necessary to describe a book's contents are ...


Hebrew Card Production From Rlin Records At The Klau Library, Laurel S. Wolfson Sep 1994

Hebrew Card Production From Rlin Records At The Klau Library, Laurel S. Wolfson

Judaica Librarianship

While the RUN bibliographic utility fully supports display and search capabilities of Hebrew script in bibliographic records, its card program is not able to produce cards that include Hebrew script. Hebrew Union College Library commissioned the writing of software to utilize existing RLIN functions to download Hebrew script records for local card production. However, modifications of the records are required to accommodate the idiosyncrasies of both RLIN and the local software.


Anomalies In Rlin Hebraica Records: Reflections Of A Recent Arrival On The Cataloging Scene, Clifford B. Miller Sep 1994

Anomalies In Rlin Hebraica Records: Reflections Of A Recent Arrival On The Cataloging Scene, Clifford B. Miller

Judaica Librarianship

Hebraica records on the Research Libraries Information Network feature many inconsistencies in romanization, descriptive cataloging, and form of heading. The categories of inconsistency are outlined, and examples of the variations found on RLIN are provided and discussed from the perspective of a novice cataloger. Classic Hebrew grammar and Biblical sources are often cited as authorities for the correct forms, which may not be found in Library of Congress records. Local policies of the Jewish Theological Seminary regarding name and subject headings for Judaica are included.


Hebraic Authorities: A Historical-Theoretical Perspective, Bella Hass Weinberg Sep 1994

Hebraic Authorities: A Historical-Theoretical Perspective, Bella Hass Weinberg

Judaica Librarianship

The standardization of Hebrew names in cataloging and bibliography has its roots in the Anglo-American tradition of Romanized author main entry. Cross-references from Hebrew names to their Roman equivalents are found in some British Hebraica catalogs published in the 19th century. In the Hebrew bibliographic tradition, in contrast, title main entry predominated and, given the nondistinctiveness of Jewish names, author access was rarely provided. Israeli librarians adopted the Western tradition of author main entry while retaining their commitment to original-alphabet cataloging; their Hebraic authority work consisted primarily of standardization of Hebrew orthography.

The Hebraic capability of the Research Libraries ...


Hebraica Authority Control At Brandeis, Rosalie E. Katchen Sep 1994

Hebraica Authority Control At Brandeis, Rosalie E. Katchen

Judaica Librarianship

Brandeis University Libraries has maintained separate authority files for all names written on title pages in Hebraic script-for personal, corporate, place, and conference headings. The files enable the cataloger to search in roman or Hebraic script. This paper reviews the history of the Hebraica authority files, their organization, changes in usage, adaptation to AACR2, and their reactivation when Hebrew script became available on RLIN. Current usage is examined in light of RLIN and the accommodation of nonroman scripts in the USMARC authorities format.

Library Of Congress Subject Headings In Jewish Studies: Recent Changes (1992–1994), Joseph Galron-Goldschlager

Judaica Librarianship

The following subject headings of interest to Judaica and Hebraica librarians were culled from Library of Congress Weekly Lists nos. 21–51 (1992) (May 20, 1992–December 16, 1992), 1–51 (1993) (December 30, 1992–December 15, 1993), and 1–5 (1994) (January 5, 1994–February 2, 1994).

Gender Portrayal In Jewish Children's Literature, Ellen G. Cole Sep 1994

Gender Portrayal In Jewish Children's Literature, Ellen G. Cole

Judaica Librarianship

Current concerns with equality and equity focus the spotlight on gender, especially in a patriarchal religion and its observances, customs, and literature. When boys and girls read Jewish books they receive an image through word and picture of Jewish girls and women. This image can vary if the subject of the story is religious or cultural, if the time frame is past or present, if the locale is familiar or foreign, or if the plot conflict involves a male or another female. Gender can shift the fulcrum when the world seesaws between unfair and un equal.

Books contain implicit and ...


Generations Sharing The Holocaust Experience, Esther Hautzig Sep 1994

Generations Sharing The Holocaust Experience, Esther Hautzig

Judaica Librarianship

The author's feelings and experiences in sharing the Holocaust with her own children and the children she addresses regularly in schools are discussed in this paper. From her talks and exchanges with young people, it has been the author's experience that stories of how we lived, not perished, make the greatest impact on young and old listeners. Unless we know the people's lives and what the Jewish people, as well as society at large, lost through the deaths of countless brilliant, educated, compassionate people, as well as children whose futures will always remain unknown and unrealized, we ...


Kindertransport: A Happy Ending?, Olga Levy Drucker Sep 1994

Kindertransport: A Happy Ending?, Olga Levy Drucker

Judaica Librarianship

In early 1939, at age eleven, the author was sent from her native Stuttgart, Germany, on a Children's Transport to England, where she remained for the next six years, living with strangers. Kindertransport, her autobiography, was conceived as a book for young adults at the 50th reunion in London in June 1989. This paper deals with historical as well as emotional aspects of this part of the Holocaust. It points out the existence of intolerance in today's world, and asks whether a repetition of the atrocities of the thirties and forties can be prevented, both in our time ...


Legend In Jewish Children's Literature, Ellen Frankel Sep 1994

Legend In Jewish Children's Literature, Ellen Frankel

Judaica Librarianship

Until recent times, Jewish children's legends did not exist as a separate literature. Children learned stories either from classical Jewish sources, family members, or traveling story tellers.

Recent interest in and publication of Jewish children's stories represent both a boon and a danger. Contemporary versions of traditional tales blur the distinctions between fiction and folklore, challenging the inherent conservatism of the folk process.

What makes a particular story Jewish? Jewish tales attempt to find meaning and divine purpose in national and personal events. They also resonate with old voices—"proof-texts" from the Bible and rabbinic writings—as well ...


Books Without Boundaries: Jewish Children's Books In The Secular Arena, Carol Snyder Sep 1994

Books Without Boundaries: Jewish Children's Books In The Secular Arena, Carol Snyder

Judaica Librarianship

Books with Jewish content are of universal interest and are important to individuals and to society. Through humor and personal experiences in writing and speaking about my Ike and Mama series, my middlegrade young-adult books, as well as my picture book, God Must Like Cookies, Too, I communicate to publishers, authors, and librarians the ways that my books have crossed over to the general marketplace. Why and how this came to be, and the newfound inclusion and interest of Jewish writers in the "multicultural" designation are also examined.


The Multicultural Curriculum And Children's Books Of Jewish Interest In The Public School, Sylvia Firschein Sep 1994

The Multicultural Curriculum And Children's Books Of Jewish Interest In The Public School, Sylvia Firschein

Judaica Librarianship

Books of Jewish interest in the public school are of two kinds. They may be informational, nonfiction works, generally classified in the religion section of the library's classification scheme. Such works are useful for those who are studying about Judaism and for those Jewish children in the school who need to see themselves reflected in the collection. Works in the second category, picture books and fiction, must be chosen for their universal value. The stories must appeal to all children, regardless of race or religion. Any child must be able to identify with the characters and incidentally learn something ...
