National Library to be established in Jerusalem
The Knesset unanimously passed an historic law Monday evening creating Israel's first national library. The new law paves the way for a new building and a new attitude. Prof. Carl Posy, academic director of the Jewish National and University Library, is responsible for figuring out which directions the new library should take. The Jewish National and University Library on the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's Givat Ram campus has acted as the national library de facto since the university's inception in 1925 and even before.
