Creating A National Bibliographic Past: The Institute For Hebrew Bibliography, Roger S. Kohn Dec 2007

Creating A National Bibliographic Past: The Institute For Hebrew Bibliography, Roger S. Kohn

Judaica Librarianship

The mission of the Institute for Hebrew Bibliography (IHB), located at the Jewish and National University Library (JNUL) in Jerusalem from the early 1960s to the present, is to describe all of the books printed in Hebrew characters since the invention of printing to 1960. The ambitious scope of the project was set only after discussions between historians and catalogers. The IHB created two card catalogs, one for bibliographic descriptions, and a second for biographies of Hebrew authors. The release, in 1994, of The Bibliography of the Hebrew Book CD-ROM, followed in 2002 by an Internet-accessible database (updated in 2004 ...

Johann Heinrich Hottinger And The Systematic Organization Of Jewish Literature, Seth Jerchower, Heidi G. Lerner Dec 2007

Johann Heinrich Hottinger And The Systematic Organization Of Jewish Literature, Seth Jerchower, Heidi G. Lerner

Judaica Librarianship

The authors explore the influence of the Swiss theologian, Orientalist, and Christian Hebraist, Johann Heinrich Hottinger, who preceded Shabbetai Bass in developing and implementing a classified Hebraica-Judaica bibliography. His ideas and theories have heretofore not been closely examined by Judaica bibliographers or researchers of Jewish intellectual history. Hottinger’s innovation was his degree of abstraction: that of analyzing a collection according to its contents. A study of his theories and classification systems can stimulate and encourage a renewed look at early practices and offer insights that can be relevant to current research. Unless otherwise noted, translations from the original Latin ...

Presidential Address The Ideological And Economic Repositioning Of Universities, Allan Pitman Dec 2007

Presidential Address The Ideological And Economic Repositioning Of Universities, Allan Pitman

Comparative and International Education / Éducation Comparée et Internationale

A reconceptualization of the human capital value of education as a private good, linked to a market oriented commodification of university knowledge, underpins a repositioning of universities as entrepreneurial enterprises. The implications for universities and the professoriate are explored, with a particular emphasis on the ways in which the institutions and work within them are being redefined. Canadian and Australian experiences are drawn upon.

Une nouvelle conceptualisation de la valeur du capital humain en enseignement comme un bien privé, relié au savoir universitaire comme des marchandises destinées au marché, étaie une repositionnement des universités comme des entreprises commerciales. L'auteur ...

Educational Institutions Negotiating Democracy And Social Justice: The (Im)Balance Of Power And Accountability, Paul R. Carr, Gina Thésée Dec 2007

Educational Institutions Negotiating Democracy And Social Justice: The (Im)Balance Of Power And Accountability, Paul R. Carr, Gina Thésée

Comparative and International Education / Éducation Comparée et Internationale

Democracy and education are considered to be mutually reinforcing, yet it is unclear how democracy is achieved in/through education. At a time when educational systems and governments rhetorically advocate for greater accountability for academic achievement, there seems to be less emphasis placed on the area of social justice for students. The capacity of the institutional culture of an entire educational system of a jurisdiction (the provincial/state level, school boards and schools) to support and achieve a high level of critical democracy has not been the focus of extensive research. For the purposes of this paper, democratic education is ...
