Jewish Legal Materials in Libraries

Under Library of Congress rules, the Law Library, rather than the Hebraic section's reading room, gets all materials pertaining to the Israeli legal system, the legal status of Jews regardless of place, and works on Mishpat Ivri (aspects of halacha addressing subjects that western legal scholars consider to be "law" rather than "religion"). These materials are often of interest to Judaica scholars and are often collected by libraries specializing in Jewish materials. However, since LC considers them to be "law," they are cataloged according to the norms for cataloging legal materials rather than Judaica.
