N.B. The Library is closed for the month of August.

Use of the library, consulting books and other modalities are established by regulations available at the reception.

The Studium Biblicum Franciscanum Library is located at the Flagellation in Jerusalem. It is at the service of the students and professors of the Institute and of those interested in Sacred Scripture and biblical archeology.
The library is for consultation only and with open shelves. Users therefore have free access to the books and magazines. Each user has at his disposal a table for consulting volumes and each workstation is equipped with electrical sockets for personal computers and internet connection. The wifi service is available only to registered students of the Institute.
Consultation and reference services are available only during opening hours.
The library catalog is freely available at the address: The catalog includes both the library of the Studium Biblicum Franciscanum and the General Library of the Custody of the Holy Land (located at the monastery of St. Saviour). To view only the books held by the Studium Biblicum Library, you should select the Studium Biblicum Library from the drop-down menu on the top right of the screen.
Currently there are almost 60,000 volumes in the catalog and over a thousand magazine titles.
Since 2015, there has been an active collaboration between the Studium Biblicum Library and the Research Center Book Publishing Library (CRELEB) of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Milan within the “Bridges for Peace” project, promoted by ATS pro Terra Sancta. This collaboration has resulted in the online publication of the library catalog, its development on the web and its inclusion of data relating to books and magazines owned by the library.
