See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Goldzieher Library, one of the most remarkable collections of Arabica in existence, purchased recently by the Zionist Organization with funds of the Keren Hayesod for the Hebrew University, from the family of the late famous Jeiwh Arabist, is now safely housed in a building adjoining the National Library in Jerusalem. The collection will remain there until the Wolfsohn Foundation will have erected a home for the Jewish National Library.
