RAS Roundtable: Digital Humanities Clinic #3

Thursday, November 18, 2021
9:30AM PT / 12:30PM ET / 7:30PM Israel Time

During this workshop, AJL’s Michelle Margolis Chesner will discuss the project “Footprints: Jewish Books Through Time and Place,” a database to track the circulation of printed “Jewish books.” Footprints connects pieces of information about the movement of early printed books to each other in order to build up a composite view of the movement of Jewish texts and ideas from place to place and across time. Workshop participants will have the chance to learn about the conceptual and methodological development of the project, and discuss with the presenter.

This roundtable is sponsored by AJL’s RAS Division and all members are welcome. Members only.

RAS Cataloging Forum: The LC classifications of BM vs. KBM

Tuesday, November 23, 2021
9:30AM PT / 12:30PM ET / 7:30PM Israel Time

Cataloging law and law related material can be challenging, even more so when the topics are marriage, divorce, and dinai mamanot (Jewish financial law). Does the cataloger classify Jewish marriage under BM713 or KBM546.13; would Jewish divorce be classed under BM713.5 or KBM562.3; would a book on Jewish financial law be classed under BM509.E27 or KBM639? What is the difference between BM and KBM? This forum, led by Aaron Kuperman, will help provide working knowledge of the two classes.

This forum is sponsored by AJL’s RAS Cataloging Committee and all members are welcome. Members only.
