The Department strives to provide its scholars and students with proper library facilities. Creating a library collection that includes the fundamental publications in the field of Jewish studies is a top priority. The number of books and periodicals has been constantly growing since 2003 thanks to the generosity of donors from both Poland and abroad. The Department of Jewish Studies library owns approximately 9,000 printed volumes, in that about 4,000 in Yiddish and Hebrew, and about 1,500 journal issues.
Leon Chameides and Alex Lauterbach are among our most generous library donors and supporters.
