Endowment to enhance the Center's Online Public Access Catalog.

The Center for Jewish History ('the Center') respectfully requests a challenge grant of $1 million towards a $10 million endowment campaign that will enhance its Archive and Library Services Program. The funds will be used to enhance the Program's two entities: the Online Public Access Catalog (OPAC) and the Lillian Goldman Reading Room. The OPAC is a unique tool that integrates the library, archive and museum holdings of the Center's five partner organizations for researchers around the world. Maintaining the OPAC entails a combination of archival processing, cataloging, and the expansion of digital collections. The Lillian Goldman Reading Room is the physical gateway to the partner collections and several scholarly initiatives that include the Center's Graduate Fellowship Program, Graduate Seminar Series, and Scholars Working Groups, among others.
