What makes the Price Library of Judaica such a good resource for Jewish Studies? 1. Size: it has around 95,000 circulating volumes covering every aspect of Jewish Studies 2. Reputation: it is widely considered the best Judaica library in the Southeastern United States 3. Standing: in terms of its scarce late 19 th to early 20 th century materials, it ranks among the top 10 academic libraries in the world 4. Strengths: a huge collection of periodicals, including many titles not held elsewhere; an excellent Land of Israel Studies collection, a large selection of Hebrew literary works, a great Yiddish collection, a strong Holocaust studies collection, including one of the largest collection of Yizkor books in the US, and a good Latin American Jewish collection

THE MISHKIN COLLECTION In brief the Collection is a superb collection Thousands of items in the Mishkin Collection although of recent vintage are in fact more rare than incunabula

Historical Firsts! The UF Libraries were awarded the first National Endowment for the Humanities Challenge Grant awarded to a United States research library in order to pay for the Mishkin Judaica Library This grant was matched by the first State of Florida Quality Improvement Funds The Price family gift was the largest single gift ever made to the libraries at that time, and it was the first time that a special collection in the University Libraries had been endowed
