Created through the generosity of the Dr. Bernard Heller Foundation, the institute honors the memory of Professor Saul Lieberman (1898-1983) and strives to attain the high standards of scholarship and teaching that he set for his students.
The Lieberman Institute continues to develop modern and rigorous computer tools for Talmud study. The goal of the institute is to develop databases that will give access to the innumerable variant readings of the talmudic text in manuscript form and through early printed witnesses. To support this goal, the following extensive, computer-based research tools are in development:
The databases can be accessed through the computer terminal at the reference desk of The Library and are also available for purchase. Contact The Library for more information.
