Conference Proceeding: Expanding Collections and New Technology at the National Library of Israel

The cornerstone-laying ceremony for the new building of the National Library of Israel has received more attention than any other part of the Library's ongoing Renewal Plan. Still, the National Library of Israel is advancing in several other directions as well: collections, educational activities, technology, and international cooperation. The National Library of Israel continues to create educational materials for the school systems in Israel and elsewhere. It's brand new interface for digitized Hebrew manuscripts and for the Israel Archives Network offers new user experience and access to materials. Its cooperation with major collections around the world guarantees increased access to wider and broader digital collections. All of these tools can help researchers, students and other libraries.
