Basic Bibliographic and Reference Tools in Hebraica, Judaica, and Semitics

HEBREW 5801: Basic Bibliographic and Reference Tools in Hebraica, Judaica, and Semitics

A survey of tools which may be used in doing research at all levels in the study of Hebraica, Judaica, and Semitics.  Prereq: Not open to students with credit for 680.

The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to the different types of research sources available in English, Hebrew, and western European languages. Examples of these diverse sources will be shown in class, and students will be asked to evaluate and report to the class on individual titles. While much of the discussion will, of necessity, center on using tools available in the Ohio State libraries, the emphasis will be upon 1) learning a methodology which can be applied to any research topic, 2) using bibliographic tools in any research institution, and 3) evaluating sources of information.
