Electronic Books in the Academic World: the Implications for Jewish Studies

By Heidi G. Lerner

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Fall 2004

More and more institutions, commercial publishers, consortia, and individuals are taking the initiative to move printed books into the digital environment. The number of titles of importance to Jewish studies is limited and narrow in scope. It is imperative that Jewish studies scholars including publishers, academics, and librarians join together to coordinate the planning and development of standards for selecting, accessing, describing, and archiving their important books in an electronic environment.
