Conference Proceeding: 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
