Directories for the Mandate Period

The period of the Mandate government in Palestine extended from 1918(?) till 1948, with the official records being either in Hebrew or English. This list is based upon materials found in the Aleph catalogue of the universities and colleges, and the Tel-Aviv public libraries. Since not all public and educational institutions use the Aleph catalogue, there may be additional copies of these publications found elsewhere. The language of the documents was decided upon by the purpose of the document. The list is organized according to the earliest available issue of the publication IGS has found. Additional issues of the same publication that have been found are listed together with the first issue.
