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. A few print copies of these Proceedings are available for purchase from AJL Publications.
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. Copies are still available of the Proceedings for the 1998 (Philadelphia, PA), 1999 (Boca Raton, FL), and 2000 (Washington, DC) conventions. The cost is $15 each and they may be ordered from AJL Publications.
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.
