History

The STI was founded in 1951 in the premises of the Newman’s Missionary School, originally the home of the architect and archaeologist Conrad Schick, built in 1882 and known under the name of Beit Tavor. The library inherited the collection of the old school and was later expanded with emphasis on biblical exegesis. There are approximately 3,000 books in the collection. Part of the collection, a newspaper clip archive, was transferred to the library at Tantur.

The library was fully renovated as well as the rest of the building in 2011.

The archive of the Swedish institute begins only in 1947 and is kept in Uppsala.
