Jewish Pamphlets Project phase 1 is complete

By Vanessa Freedman, on 4 August 2015

The first phase of the project to to catalogue the Jewish pamphlets at UCL Special Collections is now complete, with 4000 pamphlets catalogued in Aleph.

Some notable items from the project will be installed in the display cases next to the Donaldson Room in the Main Library on 13th August and will remain there until October/November, so do go and have a look.

Sadly this means saying goodbye to the project cataloguers, Dalia Maoz-Michaels and Peter Salinger (though Peter will remain at UCL as a volunteer). We held a small celebration after the Retrospective Cataloguing Team meeting last week to thank Peter and Dalia for all their hard work. They in turn thanked Andrew Watson, the project manager, for his guidance and support.

We are now seeking funding for phase 2 of the project, which will involve conservation, digitisation and further cataloguing – so watch this space!

    This is a really important, scholarly research project. UCL has a very special place in the history of the Anglo-Jewish community. And it is incredibly important that UCL Library Servcies share its academic riches with the community. Congratulations to everyone involved in phase I of the project and good luck with fundraising for Phase II. Happy to help where I can.
