Anna's role in the library

Working with Judaica and Hebraica Collections curator Zachary Baker, I am responsible for selecting new Jewish Studies materials in all media.  This interdisciplinary and multilingual field includes history; literature; linguistics; cultural studies; and contemporary social, political and cultural developments in the United States, Israel and throughout the world.  I also provide reference assistance in these areas of study.
