Status as national library[edit]

The article could cover the fact that until Nov 2007 it was not the legal national library, only the de facto national library. Ref: http://www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1195546743050&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull Nurg (talk) 20:38, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

This is true currently. A new law, which will come into effect on 1/1/2008 officialy makes in the national library (and also changes it's name to "The national library" הספרייה הלאומית). DGtal (talk) 23:53, 15 December 2007 (UTC)

Reference for name change[edit]

Unfortunately, the site if the library has not yet been updated. am quating here an email sent to Ha-Safran newsgroup, a large distribution jewish library related group. I ommited from the quote the writer email and contact details to minimize spam.

JNUL becomes National Library of Israel - II

On Nov. 26th, 2007 the Knesset passed the National Library Law which set up the legal framework for changing the Jewish National and University Library from a department of the Hebrew University into the National Library of Israel.

Yesterday (July 23, 2008) the president of the Hebrew University convened the first meeting of the directorate of the new library and officially changed the Library's status.

Under the National Library Law the Library is now a semi-independent unit of the Hebrew University, with independent financial systems and fund raising. Subsequently, within a period of three years, the Library will become fully independent.

The Library's new name is "ha-sifriyah ha-le'umit" (in English: The National Library of Israel). It's mandate is to serve as the national library of both Israel and the Jewish People, as well as continuing to be a general humanities research library for both the Hebrew University and other scholars.

During the coming year, the Library's web site and other activities will gradually be 're-branded' with the new name and logo. For the time being the Library's web address will remain unchanged. When it does change we hope to redirect automatically from the old addresses to the new ones.

nomo and the palestinian books revert[edit]

hi nomo - not sure why you reverted my edits. you claim it had to do with peer review material, but no one was really arguing the sources - we can do that later. but the POV writing and the new RS added were certainly what the sources reflect. also, the title of the sub-head: do you know that all the books were palestinian books? maybe some were german or swedish or british? and now back to sources - the jerusalem quarterly is not RS.
