The Library computers all offer free internet connection; the Library has free WiFi connection.

 


Library Catalog  
"One Search – Art" is an advanced user-friendly search tool. It enables a simultaneous search in the Library resources: the Library Collection, the Digital Archive for Israeli Art, the Index to Hebrew Periodicals (IHP), JSTOR and EBSCO. The catalog is accessible from any computer and allows a preliminary search in the Library Collection.


The Index to Hebrew Periodicals (IHP)

The Index can be searched directly from the "One Search – Art" (link) interface by clicking on the tab "Search for Articles" above the search bar.
