The collection comprises the most extensive literature on Jewish Studies in the Federal Republic of Germany and is among the most important worldwide collections of its kind.
Scientific publications in different languages on religious and intellectual history, Jewish literary and cultural history, economic history of the Jews, Jewish law, anti-Semitism and migration are available as well as information on geography and politics of the state of Israel or the Mideast conflict.
Furthermore, it offers a large stock of fiction in the original language Hebrew and in translation. The collection now comprises more than 250.000 volumes.
Judaica Europeana is a network of archives, libraries and museums, which wants to facilitate online-access to the most important collections of Jewish cultural heritage and was primarily initiated by the Judaica Department.

Most part of the historical holdings have been digitized and are available online free of charge. They are structured by genre and subject into different collections, but an overall search is also possible.
Collection since 2016: Specialised Information Service Jewish Studies
The Specialised Information Service Jewish Studies is a cooperation project with Prof. Kai Eckert from the Stuttgart Media University and creates a powerful information transfer system as well as improved access to resources. A portal will serve as central platform for scientific information and offer different services, e.g. the provision of Hebrew works in the original script in the catalogue and access to electronic resources.
