Open Educational Resources (OER): Center for Jewish History

Open Educational Resources (OER) are freely accessible, openly licensed documents and media that are useful for teaching, learning, and assessing as well as for research purposes.

Center for Jewish History: The Center Digital Collections catalog provides access to the digital assets of the Center for Jewish History and its five partner organizations, the American Jewish Historical Society, the American Sephardi Federation, the Leo Baeck Institute, Yeshiva University Museum, and the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. The combined collections of the five partners constitute a vital resource for the documentation and exploration of the Jewish experience.

The Center Digital Collections feature a variety of digital objects, including rare books, children’s books, personal letters, official decrees, maps, memoirs, posters, photographs, scrapbooks, oral histories, finding aids, dissertations, and much more. The digitization and dissemination of these materials is an important contribution to the preservation, access and educational missions of the Partners and the Center itself.
