Digital Media Workshop

The Digital Media Workshop is a hands-on, interactive session at the AJS Annual Conference in which individual scholars or teams of scholars can demonstrate their digital Jewish Studies projects. Projects may include research and teaching tools, or born-digital scholarly works of particular interest to Jewish studies professors and students. The AJS is pleased to make available links to online resources presented in Digital Media Workshop presentations.

Perspectives on Technology

From 2003 through 2011, Heidi Lerner, Hebraica/Judaica cataloguer at Stanford University Libraries, wrote "Perspectives on Technology" an AJS Perspectives column on technology-based resources related to teaching and research in Jewish Studies. The AJS is pleased to make available her past columns, with links to relevant resources.
