In 1950 the National Library of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem was still housed in the building depicted on this stamp, on Mount Scopus in northern Jerusalem. Today, the Jewish National and University Library is located on the newer Givat Ram campus (first opened in 1958) in western Jerusalem. The domed building on the stamp is now home to the Hebrew University Law School, in the midst of an expanded and modernized campus.
