AJL's Israel Group Planning Next Event
The Steering Committee of the Judaica Librarians' Group (AJL in Israel) had a meeting last week.
It was decided to have the next study day on 28 April at the National Library. There will be 4 speakers on the following topics:
The Phoneteka (collection of sound recordings at NLI)
Europeana Judaica (JUDAICA (Jewish Urban Digital European Integrated Cultural Archive) will work with European cultural institutions to identify content demonstrating the Jewish contribution to the cities of Europe. It will digitise 10,500 photos, 1,500 postcards and 7,150 recordings as well as several million pages from books, newspapers, archives and press clippings.
Other decisions include establishing a blog for the discussion of problems that arise during the course of work. Also an online publication for the dissemination of information about unique items or cataloging problems encountered in the course of work till be set up. The director of the Rambam Library in Tel Aviv has offered to be the editor. Now we're trying to arrange an editorial board.
