The Making of a Classification Scheme for Libraries of Judaica.
Elazar, David H.
This paper provides an overview of the Elazar classification system for libraries of Judaica. The authors of the scheme contend that there was and is a need for a system for libraries of Judaica to classify and arrange their collections according to Jewish concepts based upon Jewish thought and terminology. Topics covered include: (1) initial development and the first edition; (2) revision and the second edition; (3) revision and the third edition; (4) spelling authority; (5) the problem of having to use another system for general works in libraries that combine Jewish and general collections; (6) important features; (7) unique usage/expansion of the system; and (8) a summary of the philosophy behind the Elazar system.
