Israeli music archive
The archive contains comprehensive information about Israeli music and musical life in Israel, in particular in Jerusalem, from the days of the Jewish Yishuv to the present day.All articles published in Israel or abroad about Israeli music are collected in the archive.The archive was established in 1988, although a considerable part of the material already existed in the library before that time.The material, some of which is extremely rare, is stored in closed drawers so that its use can be supervised.Among other things, the archive contains musical scores, journals and books.In addition to papers on the subject of Israeli music, the archive also contains books written by Israeli musicologists in a range of fields, thus creating a sense of Israel's place in global musical research.
Journals in Hebrew on subjects relating to music and dance can also be found in the archive, as well as programs and invitations for musical events, some dating back to the beginning of the last century, serving as an important historical source.
Another important historic document is the database of Israeli musicians, which includes letters, photographs, documents and so on.The archive therefore provides fertile ground for musicological research.
