YIVO Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe: From Print to Digital

The YIVO Encyclopedia of Jewish in Eastern Europe (edited by Prof. Gershon Hudert of McGill University) was published in two volumes in 2008. Two years later, the enhanced digitized version was finalized and made accessible on the Web. As copy chief of this unparalleled project, which covers the history and culture of Jews in the region from Renaissance times until the early 21st century, Joyce Rappaport describes the process of compiling, editing, and transitioning to its Web-based mode. She shows how both versions are valuable resources for librarians, scholars, and the general reader.

Presented by Joyce Rappaport at the 2011 AJL Convention in Montreal, Quebec.
