Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library Judaica Collection
The Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library houses an extensive collection of Judaica materials in Hebrew, Yiddish, English, and many European languages. Book funds contributed by the Lucius N. Littauer Foundation, Bruce and Lois Zenkel, Jerold Solovy, and Hubert and Francis Brandt, as well as acquisitions funded by the University of Michigan, have expanded the library's Judaica holdings. A curatorship of Judaica in the Library has been established in memory of Irving Hermelin.
Martin Salinger Resource Center
The Salinger Resource Center, located at 3034 Frieze, was established in 1985. It includes a reference library, a reading room, and a collection of video and audio materials. The Center was created through the generosity of the Martin Salinger family, in his memory, with the assistance of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts.
The Jewish Heritage Video Collection
The Jewish Heritage Video Collection, donated to the Frankel Center for Judaic Studies by Hubert Brandt and Eugene Grant, was created to explore the heritage of American Jews through the unique resources of film and television. The JHVC covers areas ranging from American Jewish experience to relation and identity, and includes features and documentaries, American and foreign productions. Many of the tapes are not generally available in video stores. The JHVC is housed in the Salinger Resource Center.
Project FLAME (Foreign Language Applications in the Multi Media Environment) is a development and research project for the creation of multimedia instructional materials to be integrated into foreign language curricula. Three years ago the first multimedia language application, using video disk and software, was introduced to the study of modern Hebrew at the University of Michigan by Project Director and Professor Edna Amir Coffin . Since that time the program has been expanded to include materials for students of Spanish, French, Chinese and Japanese. Hebrew students at the University of Michigan benefit from their state-of-the-art enhancement to the traditional classroom experience.
