Vardit Samuels

Judaica Collection Specialist
Widener Library

The Harvard Judaica Collection documents the life and culture of the Jewish people throughout history — in all places, all languages, and all formats — with particular comprehensive coverage of life and culture in the State of Israel. A primary aspect of my job is to help library patrons access the Judaica Collection's materials. I also work on cataloging and processing our acquisitions in all formats and languages, and assist in the training of the Judaica Division student assistants.
