Conference Proceeding: The National Library of Israel: Developments in Collections, Cataloguing and Public Access

In 2017-2018, The National Library of Israel has made important strides in its collections, cataloguing, digitization and public access. From the continuing processing of the famed Valmadonna collection to mysterious manuscript amulets smuggled out of the Soviet Union, collections continue to expand. Digitizing and cataloguing of Kiyat Sefer as well as international cooperation related to RDA and authority files also lead the agenda. The NLI's new user interface, expanding digital collections and social media presence can help access to the collections, while cultural activities and cooperation with Israel's Education Ministry bring the library to the general public in new ways.
