In order that there may be available an adequate source for all those who wish to do research work in current Palestine problems, the Zionist Organization of America has determined to establish a research library at its headquarters, according to an announcement issued by Emanuel Neumann, Chairman of the Committee on Public Information.

A preliminary sum has been set aside to secure the foundation for the library but it is proposed that the Jews throughout the United States, interested in making an important research instrument out of the library, should contribute pamphlets, manuscripts, books and other material that might find a place in such a library.

In announcing the library, Mr. Neumann has issued an appeal for contributions in the form of books, pointing out that a research library is a necessity in order to develop a more accurrate and intimate knowledge of Zionist problems in America.
