Mendel Gottesman Library of Hebraica/Judaica

Welcome to the Mendel Gottesman Library of Hebraica/Judaica, one of the world's great Judaic library collections and the Jewish Studies research center at Yeshiva University's Wilf Campus.  Occupying three levels in the Mendel Gottesman Library Building (levels 4 through 5A) the Library offers services and collections for advanced scholarship as well as for the student just beginning to explore the field. 

With over 300,000 physical volumes, and access to more than 50,000 electronic-journals, several hundred databases, and 428,000 electronic book titles shared with other libraries at the Wilf and Beren Campuses, the Gottesman Library provides students and faculty members with a vast array of information sources.  The Library is particularly strong in the areas of Bible, Rabbinic literature, Jewish history, Jewish philosophy, Hebrew language and literature.  Rare books and manuscript collections as well as archival materials complement the Library's holdings.

Librarians work with students individually to assist them in assigned projects and teach classes to help guide students in the identification, selection, evaluation and use of information.  Computing, wireless access, scanning, copying and printing services, along with software tools such as Electronic Reserves and citation programs, support research and learning activities.
