Searching in Hebrew and Yiddish

When searching Duke's catalog for Hebrew or Yiddish-language materials, here are several helpful methods:

  • Searching using romanized terms:
  • Searching in Hebrew characters
    • This method may not retrieve all relevant results, but will likely return some different results than a romanized search term
  • Searching under author's name (Last name, first name)
    • This is a good method to employ to pull in the most complete results when the author's name is known.
