Specialised Information Service Jewish Studies / Israel Studies
|Funded by:||German Research Foundation (DFG)|
|Funding amount:||Staff appropriations and material resources|
|Project duration:||2016 - 2018|
The German Research Foundation DFG funds the Specialised Information Service Jewish Studies (FID Jüdische Studien), a cooperation project with Prof. Kai Eckert from the Stuttgart Media University. The FID Jüdische Studien replaces Frankfurt University Library's former special collections Wissenschaft vom Judentum and Israel, which formed the largest collection of scientific literature on the subject of Judaism and Israel in the Federal Republic of Germany.
The FID Jüdische Studien provides an efficient information transfer system and improved access to resources. A portal will serve as central platform for scientific information. Further core tasks comprise:
- The development of a tool for automated reconversion of transliterated titles, catalogued in the 20th century, back to the original Hebrew in order to facilitate the search.
- The contextualisation of the extensive digital Judaica collections in cooperation with Prof. Eckert. Metadata is enhanced by comprehensive information from discipline-specific reference works, so that different resources in the Linked Open Data are connected.
- The installation of a cross-portal research platform with the FID Nahoststudien (Specialised Information Service Middle East Studies) of the ULB Halle, connecting Hebrew and Arabic literature collections on the special topic "Israel/Palestine" for the first time under one Web interface.
- The integration of the bibliographic database on literature of the Jewish Enlightenment, Library of the Haskala, in the FID portal and its further development as a scientific platform for Haskala research.
- The development of a demand-oriented collection, especially of resources in Hebrew, in close consultation with experts, and the licensing of subject-specific databases
