Paper presented as part of the panel session, "Modification of RLIN Hebraica Records: A Cataloging Workshop," held at the 28th Annual Convention of the Association of Jewish Libraries, New York, June 22, 1993.

Abstract

Hebraica records on the Research Libraries Information Network feature many inconsistencies in romanization, descriptive cataloging, and form of heading. The categories of inconsistency are outlined, and examples of the variations found on RLIN are provided and discussed from the perspective of a novice cataloger. Classic Hebrew grammar and Biblical sources are often cited as authorities for the correct forms, which may not be found in Library of Congress records. Local policies of the Jewish Theological Seminary regarding name and subject headings for Judaica are included.
