Call for Conference Papers 2015
The Association of Jewish Libraries (AJL) will hold its annual conference entitled “Yovel/Jubilee: Celebrating 50 Years of AJL!” at the Sheraton Silver Spring in Silver Spring, Maryland from Sunday, June 21-Wednesday, June 24, 2015. Librarians, archivists, scholars, educators, authors, and others will meet to share their interest in Judaica librarianship, Jewish history and culture, and related topics.
AJL is soliciting proposals for papers and presentations on aspects of Judaica librarianship as it pertains to libraries, archives, museums, schools, synagogues and related institutions. Past topics have included literature and other resources, collection management, programming, reader advisory services, special and rare collections, cataloging and classification, digital and electronic resources, technology and local Jewish history. Given the 50th anniversary of the Association, submissions dealing with both the history and future of Judaica librarianship are especially welcome.
