Rachel joined ASU in 2002 as a bibliographer of Jewish Studies and served as subject librarian for Philosophy, Religious Studies, and Medieval and Renaissance Studies (2004–2017). As Open Stack Collections Curator, a position she took on in 2017, Rachel is responsible for strategy and management of ASU Library’s openly accessible resources and print collections.
Based on her education in the fields of Hebrew linguistics and theoretical translation studies and background in publishing, Rachel established the IsraPulp Collection of Hebrew-language popular literature, a special collection of rare pulps, uncanonical literature, and subversive political print material (1930s–current). She is the curator of this collection since its inception in 2004.
Rachel is the editor of Judaica Librarianship, the peer-reviewed journal of the Association of Jewish Libraries, which she transferred from print to online publishing in 2013, and to open access in 2020.
