The Weizmann Institute Library strives to create a dynamic information environment that fosters research, learning and innovation. The library’s goals are: 

  • Develop and maintain high quality collections with an emphasis on digital content and timely access to information resources
  • Provide services and tools that support research, education and discovery


The Weizmann Institute Library System consists of the Central Library, 2 Faculty libraries, and the Weizmann Institute Archives.

The Central Library serves as the headquarters, managing and coordinating all library activities and services . It also holds special closed collections such as: History of Science, Land of Israel, the Haber collection, the Einstein reprints collection, and Prof. Ephraim Katzir's collection.

Faculty libraries contain books and periodicals on the relevant disciplines and provide Library Services to the scientific faculties, students and staff.

Entrance after hours, weekends and holidays to our Libraries is permitted to Weizmann Institute scientists and students only by means of their Scientist/student employee card (serving as a proximity card). The card is also used to exit the library.
