The library catalogues of Israel’s universities, as well as those of the majority of Israeli colleges and higher education institutions, share a national union catalogue called MALMAD, which is divided into a union catalogue of books (ULI), a union catalogue of journals (ULS), and a union catalogue of electronic journals (ULE). Access to the electronic journals is available only to authorized students and staff.

Direct access to individual collections of most of the Israeli academic libraries can be found at http://libnet.ac.il/~libnet/malmad-israelnet.htm#OPACs. See also this link for various subsets.
