In 1969 the library was opened as a research library for the Institute of Archaeology. Under the direction of the Chief Librarian, Gabriella Bachi, today over 16,000 books, 7000 offprints and 120 periodicals covering all subjects taught in the Department of Archaeology and Near Eastern Cultures are housed on its shelves. Students and faculty alike are kept up-to-date with developments in archaeological research through new books and journals purchased or exchanged for the Institute's publications with over 100 university and museum libraries world-wide. Over the summer months of 2000, the library was renovated and expanded to accommodate its growing collection. The library's computerized catalogue is accessed via the Sourasky Central Library in the Aleph system. Book titles from 1998 are all entered and we are now in the process of working backward. Journal articles are not yet entered. The library has three computer terminals.
