Conference Proceeding: Music Cataloging in Jewish Libraries: The Offenbach Collection and Beyond

This paper will discuss a current project to catalog the Offenbach collection of sheet music at HUC-JIR New York Campus, as well as the Birnbaum collection in Cincinnati. In working with the physical sheet music for the Offenbach collection and the digitized images provided by colleagues in Cincinnati for the Birnbaum collection, the Repertoire International Des Sources Musicales (RISM), Hebrew Annotated Manuscripts Vol .1, by Israel Adler is used as a guide to the collections. The ultimate goal is to create a website that houses both images of sheet music and metadata in order to help preserve the materials and provide access to those who may be interested in these materials.
