AJL RAS Cataloging Committee Meeting, 52nd AJL Conference, New York, NY  

Monday June 19, 2017, 11:15am-12:45pm (Room 501)


1. Welcome and introductions; approve 2016 Minutes.


2. What is the appropriate English-language term for שיחות?  Should we add a term for “sihot” or just use “sermons”?  If we do, is “discourses” the appropriate term? (Aaron Taub)

3. Follow up on the discussion of Romanization of foreign loan words/roots of Greek or Latin origin (Jerry Anne Dickel, others)

  • What about words that are come from Latin or Greek, but not directly from Latin or Greek into Hebrew, e.g.  פסנתר and טרקלין? (Yossi Galron)
  • Loanwords versus Foreign words (Haim Gottschalk)
  • Should we add these words to the Romanization FAQ, or a separate list.  Can we come up with a principle that makes it unnecessary to keep track of these words?
  • Series authority work needed for series titles that have these words, e.g. Sidrat pirsumim me-otsrot ha-shirah ṿeha-deramah bi-Spanyolit, or in the cross-references, e.g. Merkaz ha-Yiśreʼeli li-deramah

4. Updating Hebraica Cataloging RDA, cont. (Jerry Anne Dickel)

  • IFLA LRM, RDA Steering Committee, 3R Project, i.e. major changes expected for April 2018.
