Join AJL

AJL and its South Florida Chapter have separate membership.
Our chapter, SFAJL provides:
* An electronic discussion group to help you with networking year-round.
* Opportunities for professional networking through yearly meetings or programs. We visit libraries across Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties, and share information and experiences with other local librarians.

At this time, SFAJL does not charge membership dues, but membership in the larger association is encouraged.

The Association of Jewish Libraries (AJL) provides:
* AJL New & Reviews, an online quarterly of current Association and librarianship news and reviews of Jewish-interest titles for adults and children.
* Judaica Librarianship, the only scholarly journal devoted to the field. Published annually.
* Eligibility for AJL library accreditation.
* Members-only online access to most recent Convention Proceedings and Weine classification documents.
* Annual conference for Judaica librarians. Members can receive registration discounts and travel grants.
* Discount on AJL publications
* Special awards for children’s literature and reference works, helping to promote high standards in Judaic literature.
