Ephemera: The "Poor Step-Child" of the Archive - A Look at Current Descriptive Practice of Ephemera in Archives and Special Collections

Ephemera have a storied and stormy history in archives and special collections: they live in a space between printed, non-unique material and unique materials, and pose preservation challenges for librarians and archivists. yet ephemera are among the most interesting materials in libraries and archives. As researchers start to utilize ephemera, catalogers must address the need for using ephemera. This presentation demonstrates challenges facing catalogers of ephemera in all types of institutions, including Judaic collections, and offers some possible solutions. While few standards are offered to catalogers, methods exist to allow users access to collections.

Presented by Dina Herbert at the 2013 AJL Conference in Houston, TX.
