Call for Proposals

The Association of Jewish Libraries is now soliciting proposals for its upcoming Digital Conference 2023: A World of Possibilities, Monday, June 19–Thursday, June 22, 2023

Librarians, scholars, educators, archivists, authors, and library advocates are invited to submit proposals for papers and presentations on all aspects of librarianship and on topics related to Jews, Judaism, the Jewish experience, or Israel. Presentations should be relevant to library professionals working in academic and research institutions, archives, synagogues, day schools, or Jewish community centers as well as public schools or libraries serving Jewish communities. Past topics have included collection development and management, programming, reader advisory services, special and rare collections, archival science, cataloging and classification, Jewish literature and literacy, digital and electronic resources, and emerging technologies. All presentations will be delivered over Zoom.

This year’s conference theme is A World of Possibilities. We especially encourage submissions that highlight new ideas, programs, and systems you have learned about, used, and/or developed over these tumultuous three years. Topics could include but are not limited to long-term changes in library design, new Judaica programming or collection areas in Jewish studies, and international collaborations possible in the virtual era. Since our digital conference is not bound by geography, we welcome submissions from our colleagues around the world.

Click the button below to submit your proposal. Co-presenters and panel presentations are welcome; however, each presenter must submit a separate proposal. All submissions must be received by January 31, 2023. Proposals will be reviewed by the programming committee and all applicants will be notified in March 2023. Questions? Contact
