Visitors to the Business & IP Centre

CILIP HomeI recently enjoyed giving a couple of tours of the Business & IP Centre to groups from CILIP and the Embassy of Israel.

Yvonne Morris posted a nice comment on the CILIP Information and Advice Blog.

And I received a good old fashioned letter from the Minister for Commercial Affairs thanking me for the tour of the Centre, and to my colleague Ilana Tahan, our curator of Hebrew texts, who gave an impressive introduction to our collection.

Our Hebrew collections comprise holdings of material written and printed in Hebrew characters, ranging from manuscripts copied over 1,000 years ago to the most recent monographs and serials. They include around 3,000 manuscript volumes and about 73,000 printed book titles – mostly in Hebrew and in related languages that use the Hebrew script: e.g. Aramaic, Judeo-Arabic, Judeo-Spanish and Yiddish.
