Paper presented at the 28th Annual Convention of the Association of Jewish Libraries, New York Hilton, June 22, 1993, at a session entitled "Shtaynberg or Steinberg: Authorities , NACO and Hebrew Names."

Abstract

Brandeis University Libraries has maintained separate authority files for all names written on title pages in Hebraic script-for personal, corporate, place, and conference headings. The files enable the cataloger to search in roman or Hebraic script. This paper reviews the history of the Hebraica authority files, their organization, changes in usage, adaptation to AACR2, and their reactivation when Hebrew script became available on RLIN. Current usage is examined in light of RLIN and the accommodation of nonroman scripts in the USMARC authorities format.
