AJL Members in Print: Israeli Pulp Fiction; Lifelong Learning; Holidays

AJL members are an erudite bunch. Just this week, three articles have been published in various journals representing the expertise of AJL librarians.

Rachel Leket-Mor, President of AJL's RAS Division and Jewish Studies Librarian at Arizona State University Libraries, manages an enormous collection of Israeli chapbooks called IsraPulp. A detailed and enthusiastic article about the collection appears in ASU News at http://asunews.asu.edu/20111209_IsraPulp, and there is an associated podcast interview with Leket-Mor at http://lib.asu.edu/librarychannel/2008/10/10/ep83_israpulp.

Kathe Pinchuck, AJL's Development Chair and Secretary of the SSC Division, has authored an article in NewCAJE's online journal The Jewish Educator. "Rosh Pina: The Judaica Librarian as Cornerstone of Lifelong Jewish Learning," is the lead article in the journal's Fall 2011 issue and can be downloaded as a PDF at http://thejewisheducator.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/the-jewish-educator-fall-2011-05_pinchuk.pdf.

Heidi Estrin, AJL's Vice-President/President-Elect, has contributed an article to School Library Journal's "Focus On" column. She was invited to write about celebrations and festivals, and created a recommended reading list on Jewish and other observances called "A Calendar of Holidays." The article can be seen in School Library Journal's print magazine as well as online at http://www.schoollibraryjournal.com/slj/printissue/currentissue/892545-427/celebrations_and_festivals_a_calendar.html.csp.
