Mehdi Leman's curator insight, May 23, 4:08 AM

"A new wave of dystopian fiction at this particular time shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. It's the zeitgeist. Adults write books for teenagers. So anxious adults – worried about the planet, the degradation of civil society and the bitter inheritance we're leaving for the young – write dystopian books."

More on the Digitization of Jewish Texts « Menachem Mendel

More on the Digitization of Jewish Texts « Menachem Mendel | Information Science and LIS | Scoop.it

Haaretz has a nice article about the Friedberg Geniza Project and its work on the digitization of Geniza documents. (hat tip) The article includes a lot of information about the current work being done by Prof. Yaacov Choueka, his son Roni, and other computer scientists and scholars of Rabbinic Literature. The first is how they are using face-recognition software to piece together fragments of the same document that are found in different libraries. They also hope to apply the new software to the recently digitized collection of the Dead Sea Scrolls, hoping to reconstruct scattered fragments.

Setting up a book chain

Setting up a book chain | Information Science and LIS | Scoop.it

"The bookchain is an ideal project for keen readers in school libraries, preserving the anonymity of readers while offering students opportunities to share reading experiences with readers that they probably wouldn’t encounter in any other situation in school."

Interesting alternative to a book club, this requires some organisation but could be worth a trial with a few keen readers.
