Cataloging Judaica Resources Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Thursday, November 16, 2017, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

This workshop is intended for individuals who know how to catalog, but who either may not be familiar with Jewish texts or do not know how to catalog them.

This session covers anonymous sacred works, such as the Bible, Talmud, and liturgy, and discusses how to construct the appropriate uniform titles and assign other access points, subject headings, and Library of Congress classification numbers. We will go over similar points for sacred texts with authors, such as legal codes and biblical commentaries.

The presenter will also share her favorite tools for Judaica cataloging.
