  • It’s not too late to complete the Conference Evaluation.  Access it from the Socio website or App.  Your feedback is extremely important to us!

  • An overwhelming percentage of our Digital Conference attendees said they got a fantastic experience for very little gelt.  Thank you for all of the kind comments! Show your appreciation for all of the people who put in countless hours of work and sweat to deliver an extraordinary conference during these tumultuous times by making a donation to AJL in their names. Your gift is tax deductible.  

  • Have you been gushing to your colleagues about how fabulous the conference was? Well, tell them it’s not too late to register!  AJL members who missed out on participating in real time, can purchase a post-conference all access pass for $36 which will entitle them to the recordings of all of the sessions plus all of the handouts.  Click here for more details.  

  • Because we learned how important seeing each other is, we are developing a series of virtual round tables for this summer and fall. Stay tuned for details . . . 

  • REMINDER: The Socio website and app will remain in place and you can continue to access the session recordings and handouts until it’s time for next year’s conference! The one exception is Lesléa Newman’s talk, “Maidels and Dreidels and Ladles, Oh My! The Journey of a Jewish Children’s Book Writer,” which will only be available until July 30, 2020.



Please share your experience at AJL's Digital Conference in your institution's newsletter or blog, then share that posting with AJL members. Spreading the word that you stay up to date with the latest Judaic librarianship practices is a great advocacy tool.

Thank you so much for being a part of the AJL 2020 Digital Conference! 
We look forward to “Staying Connected” with you all year!
