A “Mind-Boggling” Implication: The Hebrew Bible, The Old Testament, And The Definition Of A Work, David Conners

Judaica Librarianship

The uniform title Bible. O.T. has long caused difficulty in Judaica libraries. The well documented problems caused by this heading are reviewed.

The idea by members of the Association of Jewish Libraries to use the Virtual International Authority File as a technical solution is reviewed briefly. The author endorses a model from LC that uses different uniform titles for the Hebrew Bible ...
