Conference Proceeding: Reference Services at Touro Lander College for Women

Touro College LCW library guides compiled by the speaker include more than just standard web directories, recommended databases and bibliographies. Powerpoints, outlines-charts-exercises, book reviews, graphs, and substantive introductions pepper and spice up the library guides and make them unique resources. The Library Guides composed for the LCW curriculum show the increasing interdisciplinarity of Jewish studies as a trend. Making these guides interdisciplinary shows that librarians not only teach how to “access” knowledge, but take an active role in organizing, interpreting and commenting upon, and creatively fostering the furtherance of interdisciplinary international research.
