Israel's National Library Puts Collection Online
The National Library of Israel has just launched a website giving the public access to a huge collection of materials, including books, periodicals, maps, photos and musical selections from the library collection. The website, which took two years to develop, is the most comprehensive content-based website in Israel.
Hundreds of thousands of items from the library’s core areas – Israel, Judaism and Islam – have been scanned and are available on the website. There are also tens of thousands of hours of recorded music that Internet users can access, including rare Hebrew songs and cantorial music.
Resources can be accessed via the National Library Web Site.
