On behalf of Judaica Librarianship's Editorial Board, I am pleased to announcethat AJL's peer-reviewed journal is now available online, at http://ajlpublishing.org.
The site currently features the most recent issue of Judaica Librarianship (vol. 16/17). According to our new policy, back issues will be freely available 12 months after the publication date.
Judaica Librarianship provides a forum for scholarship on the theory and practice of Jewish Studies librarianship and Information Studies. The journal seeks to publish research articles and essays related to the development and management of Judaica collections in all types of libraries and archives, the initiation and coordination of digital curation projects, the creation and dissemination of information resources in all formats, and the promotion of Jewish information literacy for diverse audiences through various outreach activities. The Editorial Board also welcomes thoroughly revised and updated versions of papers presented at AJL Annual Conferences or chapter meetings. Additional information about topics covered in the journal is available online on the Focus and Scope page. Submission deadline for the next issue is September 30, 2013.
Students currently enrolled in any accredited Library and Information Science program are encouraged to submit essays to AJL's Student Essay Contest. Essays must be relevant to the field of Jewish Studies librarianship. The winning essay will be considered for publication, and the winner will receive a cash award.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate contacting me.
