Help LBI keep the past present with a financial donation or by contributing historical materials.
Researchers can search LBI’s extensive library, archival, art, and photograph collections online, and significant portions of these collections have already been digitized. Thus, you can conduct much of your research independently from home.
However, you may find that after identifying a resource online you have further questions about it. For instance, detailed inventories have been created for many archival collections and placed online, but some of these collections have not yet been digitized, which may leave open questions about whether the items are pertinent to your research.
In cases like this, LBI provides reference support in the Lillian Goldman Reading room of the Center for Jewish History as well as by email. Unfortunately, LBI cannot accept reference inquiries by phone.
