Ma'amadot, according to the entry under Seder Hama'amadot
in the Encyclopedia of Jewish Prayer (Nulman) is:
"Separate sections of scriptural, mishnaic, and talmudic selections for each day of the week, recited after the Shaharit service. These recitals have their origin in the Temple days...The custom of these recitals was retained after the destruction. Reading portions of the Mishnah and Talmud dealing with the sacrifices was added as well, and each day's recital was followed by different supplications...
Based on LC's collection, the Maamadot are published together with Psalms. None of LC's MARC records bring out the Ma'amadot in the subjects, although one record provides a 730 Seder Ma'amadot for the text itself. For your work, I would also suggest a descriptive access point, and the addition of the subject "Judaism--Liturgy--Texts." There should be a topical heading of the pattern "TYPE OF LITURGY--Liturgy--Texts," in accordance with SCM H 2190, but we will have to give that some further thought.
LC's Hebraica Team is currently reconsidering the treatment
of several liturgical works. In the past, it had been the practice
to assign "UNIFORM TITLE--Liturgy--Texts" for those cases in which a suitable topical heading was not readily available, however, this practice is not authorized (e.g., 630 00 Zemirot$xLiturgy$xTexts).
Instead, we are trying to develop appropriate topical headings.
The uniform title of the work should only
be assigned as a
subject access point if the item in hand is or includes a commentary or criticism of the liturgical work.
Clarification regarding Ma'amadot. This is an individual work
of readings alongside the formal liturgy,
published in many
editions. For that reason it is preferable not to assign the subject, Judaism--Liturgy--Texts, but rather Jewish devotional
calendars, although in pre-AA2, we used the uniform title: Jews. Liturgy and ritual. Readings. Ma'amadot. We do have the call no. BM675.R44 which we will continue to assign for this particular work.
According to Ted Wiener, the local LC liturgical specialist,
"Ma'amadot" is not a term describing a fixed, canonical set
texts, but is a more general term describing a type of text. As such it should not be established as a uniform title. LC
practice, according to Ted, is to enter works containing "ma'amadot" under editor or title proper; the subject heading
assigned is "Jewish devotional calendars" and the classification is BM724. Joan
