National Library of Israel: Update 2013

The National Library of Israel (NLI) continues to make major progress towards its goal of being a modern national library for both the State of Israel and the Jewish people. During the past year, the library has introduced a new user interface to its bibliographic records, enabled multi-alphabet searching (both persons and subjects), as well as preparing for the changes in national bibliographic standards related to RDA. The library has created and staffed a department of educational services which offers many options to all levels of users, from school children to researchers. Construction f the new building, on a site opposite the Knesset, will begin soon. On the international scene, the Library is taking an active part in the Europeana digital initiative and planning a cooperative project of scanning Hebrew manuscripts worldwide. This session presents these and additional ongoing and planned projects.

Presented by Marina Goldsmith and Elhanan Adler at the 2013 AJL Conference in Houston, TX.
