Event Details

The Association of Jewish Libraries will hold its 49th Annual Conference at the Westin Las Vegas Hotel from June 22 - 25, 2014.  We invite librarians, educators, authors, archivists, scholars and others to participate and share their interest in Judaica librarianship and related topics.  This is the only professional conference attended by most of the librarians in the Judaica field.
