The Association of Jewish Libraries (AJL) will hold its 46th annual convention at the Marriott Montréal Château Champlain in Montréal, Québec, from June 19 to 22, 2011. Librarians, educators, archivists, scholars, authors and others will meet to share their interest in Judaic librarianship 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. A special focus this year will be the cultural and linguistic diversity of the Montréal Jewish community. All submissions must be received by November 30, 2010.
