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.
