Entries for ' 2012 conference'

With intermarriage hovering at 50% and diminishing rates of Jewish affiliation, Jewish community leadership has been concerned about how to reach and engage young families while they are in the critical stage of exploring how they want to raise their children. Ms. Eisen shows how the JP Library, founded in 2005, helps address these issues  by offering the gift of free, high-quality Jewish books and music each month, sent directly to families' homes, making resources accessible for making Jewish choices and establishing Jewish connections.

The Archivists' Toolkit, developed as a collaboration among several major research libraries and funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, was the first open-source application to provide comprehensive, integrated support for the functions of archives. Launched in 2006, it is currently used by a broad range of repositories to manage their archives and manuscript collections. Ms. Schwimmer discusses its particular value in small to mid-sized collections.

In July 2011, the American Sephardi Federation Library and Archives was awarded a NHPRC grant to conduct the first detailed survey of Sephardi-Mizrahi archival collections throughout the northeastern United States, the first step towards providing a comprehensive research portal for Sephardi/Mizrahi studies. The results of this survey will be published within a newly-created website to publicize this work in its historical context. Mr. Belinfante discusses the background, methodology, progress and future plans for this project.
