The Washington Rare Book Group invites you to join us for our next virtual lunchtime lecture:
Footprints: Jewish Books Through Time and Place By Michelle Margolis
Footprints: Jewish Books Through Time and Place is a digital project aggregating data about the movement of printed Jewish books from the hand-press period (printed until 1800) through the present day. At this session, Michelle will discuss the Footprints project and some of the challenges and successes in looking deeply at individual copies of books.
Michelle Margolis is the Norman E. Alexander for Jewish Studies at Columbia University, as well as the President for the Association of Jewish Libraries. She is a co-director for Footprints: Jewish Books Through Time and Place, and edits a column in Judaica Librarianship on Digital Humanities and Jewish Studies. There will be a Q&A session at the end of the talk.
Even though there is no cost for this event, please RSVP by Tuesday, March 28th so we can send you an email with login instructions prior to the event. The Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants within 24 hours of the program.
We hope you will join us!
