The David and Fela Shapell Digitization Project

The David and Fela Shapell Digitization Project

About the Project

The National Library’s wide-ranging digitization initiative has been made possible from its earliest stages thanks to the generous support of the David and Fela Shapell Family Foundation. In this way, a national digital library is gradually being developed. This digital library allows access from afar to the treasures of the Library, via a website and a catalog, open to the general public, both in Israel and throughout the world.

The digitization project consists of several collections:
