Looking for Volunteers to Scan Yiddish Books

The Yiddish Book Center in Amherst is looking for a few good librarian volunteers to scan Yiddish books. The Center recently installed equipment from the Internet Archive and is scanning about 4000 rare and fragile titles onsite. Knowledge of the Hebrew alphabet and its orientation is useful, but knowledge of Yiddish is not necessary. If you can volunteer onsite in Amherst, contact Catherine Madsen, Bibliographer, at the Center 413/256-4900 x153 or cmadsen (at)
