Just in time for the beginning of the Fall semester, I am pleased to announce the purchase of two new databases for Columbia’s Judaica collection:
1. Otzar HaHochma – a database of 72,700 digitized Hebrew books, from the 15th century to the present day. Includes books from the presses of Mossad HaRav Kook and Mekhon Yerushalayim. Note that the interface is mostly in Hebrew.
2. Lieberman Index of References Dealing with Talmudic Literature – an index of resources, both modern and ancient, that reference the Talmud. Organized by Talmudic page, this is an incredible resource for anyone doing research on the Talmud.
