The 2015 AJL annual conference will be held in Silver Spring, Maryland, June 21-24.

Proceedings and podcasts of the 2014 conference will be online shortly.

The annual AJL conference (formerly known as the AJL convention) is a valuable way for Judaica librarians to share ideas, learn, and network with one another. The conference is held in a different North American city each year. 

Proceedings for the most recent past conference are available to AJL members.

Proceedings for the conferences held between 2001 and 2011 (which were called convention proceedings) are available to members and non-members alike.

Between 1996 and 2010, a distinguished Judaica librarian, archivist, or bibliographer delivered a plenary lecture at the Association of Jewish Libraries’ Annual Convention, as part of the Rosaline and Myer Feinstein Lecture Series.
