Conference Proceedings

Find us on:

The AJL Conference Proceedings (formerly the AJL Convention Proceedings) are a record of Judaica librarianship papers presented at the annual AJL conferences. All AJL conference speakers on Judaica librarianship topics are invited to submit their presentations for publication; all papers submitted are published. (Continuing Education Unit (CEU) presentations are not included because they are fee-based classes.) Submitted papers are not edited for content; responsibility for content lies solely with the author.

The Table of Contents lists only the conference speakers who have submitted their papers for that year. For a complete list of all speakers, see the appendix.
Note: The current year's Proceedings are restricted to AJL members only. People wishing to submit their papers to the online Proceedings are asked to follow the guidelines.

History of the AJL Proceedings


The AJL Proceedings were originally published from 1966-1980, and were suspended, until 1998, following the 15th annual AJL convention in 1980. A cumulative index to these Proceedings was published in 1981. 

Publication of the AJL Proceedings resumed with the 33rd annual AJL convention in 1998. Print editions were published for the next three years and distributed free to AJL members at that time. They are now available for purchase on microfilm from the American Jewish Periodical Center

Since 2001 the Proceedings have been published only on the AJL Web site. In 2012, following the decision to change the name of the AJL annual meeting from "convention" to "conference," the title Proceedings of the ... Annual Convention of the Association of Jewish Libraries was changed to Proceedings of the ... Annual Conference of the Association of Jewish Libraries.
