Appointment of Anna M. Levia as Assistant Curator for Judaica & Hebraica Collections

I'm delighted to announce the appointment of Anna M. Levia as Assistant Curator for Judaica and Hebraica Collections, effective as of Tuesday, November 16th. Since 2003 she has worked as my Curatorial Assistant on a range of projects in both Green and Meyer Libraries, in the course of which she not only acquired an impressive array of technical skills and enhanced subject expertise, but was also motivated to pursue an M.L.I.S. degree at San Jose State University (which she received in 2008). Among her many accomplishments, Anna has processed numerous small to medium-sized manuscript collections; she has participated in rare-book cataloging projects (in close collaboration with Heidi Lerner and with staff in Special Collections); and she was an active member of the project team that carried out the digitization of the Eliasaf Robinson Collection on Tel Aviv.

Before coming to Stanford, Anna studied Hebrew, Linguistics, and Middle Eastern Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, received a B.A. in Linguistics from the University of Minnesota, and worked for over a decade as a freelance writer and editor. The range of languages that she speaks and reads is both impressive and necessary for research-level collecting in Jewish Studies: she is fluent in English and Hebrew, has bibliographic knowledge of French, German, and Yiddish, and is currently studying Russian.

In her role as Assistant Curator, Anna will focus on current publications in the Judaica/Hebraica field. (I will continue to select antiquarian, rare, and Special Collections materials, and will remain active in the Taube Center for Jewish Studies.) In addition, she will have an opportunity to become involved in aspects related to her bibliographical responsibilities, including reference, instruction, and website development. Please join me in welcoming Anna Levia to her new role as Assistant Curator.
