UCSC Campus Closure

The Science & Engineering Library and McHenry Library, as well as most of the campus, will be closed December 22, 2007 through January 1, 2008. The Library's electronic services will continue to be available (barring any unplanned power or network problems), so users should have uninterrupted access to the online resources during the break.

UC Berkeley and Stanford Judaica collections featured

"Shelf life: Discovering the treasures of Berkeley, Stanford Judaica libraries." J. (111:49) Dec. 14, 2007, p.30a-31a.

The cover story in this week's J. magazine features Berkeley's and Stanford's Judaica library collections, and their librarians, Paul Hamburg and Zachary Baker. It's a good overview, highlighting items from the collections and introducing Hamburg and Baker, local stars in the Jewish studies world. It is worthwhile reading.
