Ours is an academic library that serves researchers and students at the Ben-Gurion Research Institute for the Study of Israel and Zionism. We acquire current research books and gather unique collections in our fields of interest: Zionism and the State of Israel. 

We also have several special collections, including: several books from the library of “The Old Man” himself (most of his books are kept at the Ben-Gurion House in Tel Aviv and at his Desert Home in Sde Boker, as well as with us), limited prints from the pre-state era, and an impressive collection of newsprints about and by Ben-Gurion. If you are visiting the university and would like a quiet place to read – pay us a visit.
