Modern Judaica Librarianship Meets Hebrew Books Research: A Match Made in Heaven?

Modern Judaica librarianship is not very different from general librarianship in that it concentrates more and more on the integration of digital presentations into the facilities offered to all users. A fast-growing corpus of Hebrew manuscripts and printed books are offered online in many different formats, in many different selections, and with greatly varying usefulness. This presentation concentrates on the digital presentation of Hebrew manuscripts and printed books on various websites, both from the professional librarian's perspective, with its natural concentration on best practices, international standards and sustainability, and from the researcher's perspective, with a far more limited perspective: usefulness. The presentation also includes an overview of new initiatives for international cooperation in the field of digitization of Jewish collections.

Presented by Dr. Emile G.L. Schrijver at the 2011 AJL Convention in Montreal, Quebec.
