Nearly 25 percent of research inquiries performed at the Center for Jewish History have been related to the study of the Holocaust. The Center’s librarians produce monthly reports on patrons’ research activities, and requests for Holocaust-related items are often at the top of the list.
In 2007, the Center completed Holocaust Resources: An Annotated Bibliography of Archival Holdings at the Center for Jewish History, one of the most highly utilized products the Center has ever produced. The bibliography included 2,273 entries for collections from the five partners of the Center. The project consisted primarily of identifying relevant archival collections and writing a bibliographic description.
The Center also undertook a retrospective conversion that integrated its partner legacy databases into its online catalog, allowing materials from the destroyed European communities of the 1920s and 1930s to be accessed by researchers worldwide.
